AMMAN –– Deputy overall leader of the Muslim Brotherhood Zaki Bani Rsheid was on Sunday sentenced to one and a half years in prison on charges of harming Jordan’s ties with a friendly state.

The sentence was handed to Bani Rsheid by the State Security Court under the 2014 amended Anti-Terror Law, a member of the Islamic movement told The Jordan Times.

The top Islamist leader was arrested in late November of last year in response to a critical statement posted on Facebook accusing the United Arab Emirates of promoting “Zionist” foreign policies and indirectly sponsoring “extremism” in the region.
