The Jordanian Central Bank announced Sunday that Judge Muhammad Al Sourani ordered the seizure of all movable and immovable property belonging to former Fatah strongman Muhammad Dahlan, Jordanian official newspaper Al Rai reported Monday.

The Jordanian justice ordered the seizure of Dahlan's assets over unresolved corruption charges leveled against him in the West Bank.

The Palestinian Authority has charged a number of members of Dahlan's cohort, most of whom belong or belonged to PA President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah party, with "financial corruption and murder cases," according to the report.
