Jordan’s King restricts Prince Hamza’s communications, residency, movements

CAIRO (Reuters) – Jordan’s King Abdullah has decreed restrictions on the movements, place of residence and communications of his estranged half brother Prince Hamza, the royal court said in a statement on Thursday.

Hamza, a former heir to Jordan’s throne who was placed under house arrest last year, was accused in April 2021 of trying to destabilise the monarchy in a foreign-inspired plot, but was spared punishment after pledging allegiance to the King.
