Re: Former Crown Prince said to be under house arrest in Jordan
Hard to know what involvement of members of the RF signifies. It could mean that Prince Hamzah really is concerned, as he says, about corruption and so forth. On the other hand, he would not be the first prince to seize an opportunity to try to grab the throne to which he believes he is the rightful heir from a half-brother.
Undoubtedly, though, the Jordanian regime remains on shaky ground and will remain so for as long as it remains a dictatorship rooted in minority rule and the security services. Interestingly, this coup attempt seems to have been carried out by East Bankers, who are the monarchy's traditional base of support.
More trouble in the Jordanian royal family.
Prince Hamzah bin Hussein, the former Crown Prince of Jordan, a half-brother of King Abdullah, says he has been placed under house arrest as part of a crackdown on critics. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-56626370
Seem to recall a similar story from a few years ago involving the King's full brother, Prince Feisal. Sounds like there is a lot of growing discontent with the way things are in Jordan if even close members of the royal family are speaking out like this?
