This is fantastic news!
Those three members of the Jodanian Paralympic team charged with sex crimes in Northern Ireland have been DROPPED and will NOT be participating in the games.
The Jordanian Paralympic Committee has withdrawn the men from their team — and rightfully so.
While the three men are now back in Jordan, they are due back in court in Northern Ireland on 18 October… something the Jordanian government has no problem facilitating.
Qaradha, 31, faces three charges of sexual assault, two against a child, and one of voyeurism after allegedly entering a women's changing room at the Antrim Forum leisure centre.
Hammash, 35, is accused of inciting two girls to engage in sexual activity.
Al-Junaidi, 45, is accused of sexual assault.
We're so happy they don't get to compete — but really do feel for the rest of the Jordanian team as a whole. They didn't ask to have this happen to them, and hopefully this doesn't mar their own experiences.
