Jordan: dissolving the Engineers trade Unions
Jordan, Politics, 11/29/2002
The supreme court of justice in Jordan issued a decision for desolving the engineers trade union council on the ground of a complaint submitted by members in the Union against the legitimacy of the elections which took place in April.
The lawyer of the engineers who filed the case, Imad Sharqawi, said that this decision means desolving the trade union's council and all affiliated committees, including the anti- Israeli normalization committee. The Jordanian government wanted to desolve it in October for being considered "illegal" for opposing the peace agreement signed between Jordan and Israel and over carrying out activities against normalization with Israel.
The complaint was also built on that -- the elections were held according to a new law which has not been adopted yet.
Within this context, the Jordanian state security court released three engineers who were detained for 50 days on charges of being members in an Israeli anti- normalization committee that belongs to the engineers trade union's council which is considered by the government as illegal.
Among the released persons are the secretary general of the engineers trade union Ali Abu Sukkar and other two members in the trade unions: Maysara Malas and Badi al-Rafa'ea who were accused of forming an "illegal society."
