Amman: Jordan’s military court has decided to prosecute two former chief justices on charges of destabilizing the kingdom.
According to the report of the Arab News Agency, the judges of the royal court got into trouble on the charge of shaking the government of King Abdullah II bin Hussein of Jordan.
Former Chief Justices Bassim Awadullah and Sharif Hassan Zaid Hussain are accused of conspiring with foreigners, royal news agencies say.
The royal police arrested the two judges and produced them in a military court, where the prosecution had requested that the accused be tried.
