Jordanian king: I support forgiving sedition charges to detainees, 16 released

Jordanian King Abdullah II has requested to forgive some of the sedition charges from the attempted coup earlier this month, led by his half-brother and former heir Prince Hazma and 16 people linked to the rift in the royal family that rattled the country earlier this month.
However, a member of the royal family and a former adviser to the king remained in detention, state media said on Thursday.
On Thursday, he tweeted "In this holy month when we all wish to be with family, I ask officials to look into the proper mechanism to have those who were misled into following the sedition, return to their families soon."
