Today, the Public Prosecutor of the State Security Court in Jordan issued a presumptive decision (indictment) against the detainees, Bassem Awadallah and Sharif Hassan bin Zaid, in the case of “destabilizing the security and stability of Jordan.” .
The indictment was filed and the case file was sent to the Public Prosecutor of the State Security Court for legal action.
The Jordanian authorities announced at the beginning of last April that they had managed to bury what they called sedition, and placed Prince Hamzah bin Hussein (half-brother of King Abdullah II) under house arrest.
In the case related to Prince Hamzah, 16 people were also arrested, who were later released by a royal decision, with the exception of Bassem Awadallah and Hassan bin Zaid, who were referred to the court to take legal action in the case.
A day before that, the various security services arrested the former head of the royal court, Basem Awadallah, and others as part of these investigations.
In his message to the people, King Abdullah bin Al Hussein said that what he described as sedition had been annihilated, and that “Prince Hamzah is with his family in his palace and under my care.”
