Jordan rocked by allegations against former crown prince

Hamzah Bin Al Hussein, former Crown Prince and half-brother to King Abdullah, says he is not going to obey restrictions.

The Jordanian government made its first official comment April 4 on an unprecedented April 3 joint security operation by the armed forces and the departments of General Intelligence and the Public Security involving 14 to 16 Jordanians including the former crown prince and half-brother of reigning King Abdullah II, Prince Hamzah bin al Hussein.

Today Hamaza responded in a tweeted audio message, “I’m not going to obey when they say you can’t go out, you can’t tweet, you can’t communicate with people."
