AMMONNEWS – A group of Jordanian lawyers filed a lawsuit in Jordanian courts against the producer of a controversial anti-Islam movie and against Google, the owner of Youtube.
The lawsuit was filed by the Freedoms Committee at the Jordan Bar Association (JBA), represented by Lawyer Nour al-Imam, Mustafa Yaghi, Adel Saqf al-Hayt, and Faisal Khoza’i.
An indictment decision was referred to the specialized courts on April 28, 2013, with the lawyers citing personal right against the movie “Innocence of Muslims,” which sparked major controversy and violent protests over what many Muslims considered as a major offense to the person of Prophet Muhammad.
The case was also filed against the producer of the 14-minute movie Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, and movie director Alan Roberts.
The indictment decision was also filed against Google, the owner of YouTube, for allowing the movie clip to be published on their site.
