    PRISONERS INCLUDED COMMON CRIMINALS AND POLITICAL DETAINEES, AMONG THEM COMMUNISTS.BUT THOSE JAILED FOR ESPIONAGE OR VIOLATING THE ISRAELI BOYCOTT WERE NOT RELEASED.

    MR.TELL TOLD THE NEWLY-FREED PRISONERS THAT THEY WOULD BE RE-ARRESTED IF THEY VIOLATED LAW AND ORDER.HE ALSO WARNED THAT THE GOVERNMENT WOULD ISSUE NEW LAWS TO "STRIKE WITH AN IRON FIST" EVERY PERSON ATTEMPTING TO SABOTAGE OR TRYING TO DISTURB NATIONAL SECURITY.

    ON A MORE CHEERFUL NOTE, HE SAID THE AMNESTY LAW OPENED UP A NEW ERA IN JORDAN, ENABLING THE PRISONERS TO BEGIN A NEW LIFE BASED ON GOODNESS AND STABILITY, UNITING THE JORDAN PEOPLE TO SERVE THE ARAB NATION.

    (THE AMNESTY UNDER WHICH THEY WERE RELEASED ALSO COVERS JORDANIAN EXILES.INSTRUCTIONS HAVE BEEN SENT TO JORDAN'S EMBASSIES ABROAD TO GRANT PASSPORTS TO ALL FUGITIVES).
