It will do two years in prison 62-year-old Ahmad Oweidi al-Abbadi, a former right-wing deputy in Jordan, found guilty by a Jordanian court of sending bogus information abroad via email and damaging to the dignity of the state.

According to the court, al-Abbadi, who has always pleaded innocent, would not only criticize the royal family and the country but would have done so by informing foreigners of his false information via email and even publishing leaflets.
