Jordan Daily – Jordan’s human rights system has been boosted by King Abdullah’s vision of political and economic reforms and public sector modernisation, the Director of the Human Rights Unit at the Prime Minister’s Office Dr. Khalil Al-Abdallat said on Wednesday.

Al-Abdallat spoke at a consultative meeting with civil society groups from across the country, attended by a government team for human rights.

He said the government has implemented a comprehensive national plan for human rights from 2016 to 2024, and prepared a fourth national report for the U.N. Human Rights Council, which will review Jordan’s record in January 2024.

The report reflected the government’s aspirations to enhance human rights, highlight national achievements and address challenges, he said, adding that it also aimed to foster a true partnership with national and civil society institutions.

Al-Abdallat praised the role of the media and civil society in working with the government to advance human rights and uphold the national interest, as enshrined in the constitution, national laws and international treaties.
