The Jordanian Grand Criminal Court cleared on Friday, April 26, 2019, a father of indecency of his 10-year-old daughter after the Court found that the divorced mother claimed so because she wanted to get custody of her son and daughter.

Brothers of the accused father denied the allegation and confirmed that there are a number of disputes between the accused and his ex-wife, which called on her to claim so, according to the Court's decision made by Judge Fawzi Al-Nahar.

The Court found, through hearing witnesses' testimonies, that there were disputes between the mother and father of the young daughter and that the evidence is their divorce.

The Court has also stated that the father has previously prevented his ex-wife from seeing her children before she filed the complaint against him, which aroused doubts of the validity of the complaint.
