LONDON: Authorities in Jordan arrested 18 people on Wednesday accused of attempting to destabilize the Kingdom, as part of a “sedition” case.


The investigations have ended, and the case will be referred to the court after completing the final stages of the investigation and taking the legal requirements, a source at the Public Prosecution of the State Security Court told Petra News Agency.

Several people were arrested in early April on charges of undermining the security of the state.

Brig. Gen. Hazem Al-Majali said on Tuesday that the public prosecution had “completed its investigations related to the recent events that the kingdom has been exposed to recently.”
