Jordan’s Prince Hamza bin al-Hussein planned to “destabilise” the country in a plot which involved “foreign parties”, according to the country’s deputy prime minister.

Foreign minister and deputy PM Ayman Safadi said Jordanian intelligence had intercepted certain communications at what he called the “zero hour”.

Speaking at a press conference, Mr Safadi addressed the situation in the middle eastern country which saw almost 20 people arrested.

Prince Hamzah said earlier he is under house arrest after being accused of attending meetings that included ‘criticism of the King’

Mr Safadi said that a “foreign intelligence agency” had been in contact with Prince Hamza‘s wife to supply them with a plane out of the country.

It comes after Prince Hamza spoke in a video leaked to several broadcasters, saying he was visited early on Saturday by the country’s military chief and told “I was not allowed to go out, to communicate with people or to meet with them”.

Prince Hamza is a former crown prince, as his half-brother King Abdullah removed him from the line of succession in 2004.

Mr Safadi said that Prince Hamza and those who had been detained will be referred to the state security court.

Asked whether anyone in the military had been detained, the deputy PM said “there is no talk of arresting any members of the armed forces” in connection with the plot.
