Israeli who offered to help Jordanian prince denies ever serving in Mossad

Roy Shaposhnik, the man Jordanian media reports is an ex-Mossad official who tried to get Prince Hamzah’s wife out of the country, tells Walla News’ Barak Ravid that he was never a member of Mossad.

However, he does confirm that he is a close personal friend of the prince.

“During the weekend, Prince Hamza told me about what happened in Jordan and I proposed that he send his wife and kids to stay in my house,” he says.

“I don’t have any knowledge of the events that took place in Jordan or of the people involved. The proposal I gave Prince Hamzah was done on the basis of our personal friendship and out of a wish to help the princess and their kids at this difficult moment.”
