Hamzah, the half brother of King Abdullah II, sent a recording in which he made known his disobedience to the confinement decision decreed by the Chairman of the Jordanian Armed Forces, Major General Youssef Huneiti.

Earlier, Deputy Prime Minister Ayman Safadi, without going into detail, accused the 41-year-old prince of conspiring with foreigners to destabilize the country with massive protests.

The Army warned Hamzah about actions contrary to the security and stability of the kingdom and imposed house arrest to the former heir to the Hashemite crown.

Stripped of his title of crown prince in 2004 by Abdala II, Hamzah began to be a stubborn critic of the monarchy that he blamed for corruption, nepotism and authoritarian rule.
