After the battle for the 100th anniversary of Jordan’s independence, King Abdullah of Jordan and his half-brother Prince Hamza, who were heirs to the throne, made their first public appearance on Sunday.
The official media depicted the monarch and other members of the royal family wreathing on a memorial in front of a monument to an unknown soldier and the resting place of royal members of the Lagdan Palace in Amman.
On Monday, the Royal Court issued a statement reiterating Hamza’s loyalty to King Abdullah.
Under the mediation of the royal family, the matter was resolved two days after the army warned that the prince was taking actions that could damage the stability of the kingdom.
On Wednesday, the king announced that the plot had been stopped and Hamza and his family were “under care”.
However, since a video tape was released on April 3 stating that he was under house arrest, the fate of Hamza, who has been disappearing from public view, has surfaced.
The government said last week that it prevented a destabilizing conspiracy involving Prince Hamza. The investigation revealed that Hamza and other activities in contact with “foreign political parties” aimed to undermine the stability and security of Saudi Arabia.
Hamza was the first person to inherit the throne of Jordan until 2004 when the king appointed his son Prince Hussein as heir to the throne.
Neighbors and allies of Jordan expressed their solidarity with King Abdullah.
Jordan is considered one of the most stable countries in the Middle East.
Earlier, some opposition groups gathered around Prince Hamza, which attracted the attention of the King of Jordan.
