Two women charged by a Jordanian State Security Court with recruitment for and promotion of a terrorist organization appeared in court on Wednesday.
The two women stand accused of attempting to recruit members within Jordan to ISIS and promoting them through social media.
According to Jordanian news agency Petra, the lawyer of the second defendant denied the accusation to court stating that his client does not even have a social media account on Facebook, adding that she is the mother of four children, the youngest of whom is three years old.
The court also heard a witness who claimed to receive a message on social networking application Whatsapp in August, from a phone number belonging to the first defendant attempting to recruit him to ISIS.
Petra reported that the court last week reduced the charges against the second defendant to promoting a terrorist entity instead of recruiting for.
The court will reconvene to review the case on Wednesday October 11.
