Jordan, court sentences Israel to jail for illegal entry


A Jordanian court has sentenced an Israeli to 4 months in prison for illegally entering the kingdom.

Konstantin Kotov was arrested in October on charges of illegal entry into the country and possession of drugs.

The court sentenced Kotov to four months in prison for illegal entry into Jordan and a fine of 1,000 dinars ($ 1,400) for drug possession.

Today’s verdict is still subject to appeal.

Jordan has diplomatic relations with Israel, with which it signed a peace agreement in 1994.
