Verdict in Rakban case to be announced today

By JT - Dec 04,2017 - Last updated at Dec 04,2017

AMMAN — President of the State Security Court (SSC) Judge Mohammad Afif on Sunday told the Jordan News Agency, Petra, that the court will announce its verdict in the Rakban case on Monday.

In June 2016, a car bomb attack on an army post near Rakban refugee camp killed seven Jordanian soldiers and injured 11, prompting the immediate closure of the Kingdom’s northern and northeastern borders, which remained closed ever since.

The five defendants, all Syrians, plead for clemency before the court, as they face death penalties if found guilty.
