Irbid man indicted for vaccine rumormongering

An Irbid man is facing a multi-count indictment after he falsely claimed that dozens of people suffered suffocation and fainting at an Amman coronavirus vaccination center.

The man faces three charges: claim fabrication and disturbance of public peace in violation of the Penal Code, and dissemination of false news with the intent of causing panic in violation of the Communications Law.

The man was arrested by police shortly after he falsely claimed that tens of people suffered suffocation and fainting right after they took the Covid-19 jab in a central Amman inoculation center.
