Jordan military chief: Prince was asked to stop actions that undermine kingdom’s security, stability

The chief of staff of Jordan’s armed forces says though Prince Hamza was not detained as part of a wave of arrests, the Jordanian royal has been asked to halt “movements and activities that are used to target” the kingdom’s security and stability, according to a statement carried by the official Petra news agency.

Maj. Gen. Yousef Huneiti says the investigations are ongoing and that all measures have been lawful and followed extensive probes.

“No one is above the law,” he is quoted saying, adding, “Jordan’s security and stability take precedence over any consideration.”
