AMMAN — The Jordan Press Association (JPA) starts on Wednesday polling journalists on press freedoms in Jordan before issuing its report on the standards of press freedom in the Kingdom for the second year.

JPA President Tareq Momani said a special data collection team will start calling association members to fill out the questionnaires.

The 2012 report recommended that the laws regulating press freedoms be amended with the participation of the JPA, calling for ending all forms of censorship, activating laws related to the right to access information and enhancing the independence of media institutions.
