The former crown prince of Jordan Prince Hamzah bin Hussein says he has been placed under house arrest accusing the country’s “ruling system” of incompetence and corruption, exposing a rare rift within the ruling monarchy.

The Associated Press (AP) reports Prince Hamzah’s videotaped statement came after the country’s official news agency reported that two former senior officials and other suspects had been arrested for “security reasons.”

In a video leaked to the BBC, Hamzah who was stripped of his crown prince title in 2004 said he was visited early Saturday by the country’s military chief and told he was not allowed to go out, communicate with people or meet with them.

The military earlier denied Prince Hamzah was under house arrest, But it said he had been ordered to stop actions that could be used to target the country’s “security and stability”.

Hamzah said he had been informed he was being punished for taking in part in meetings in which the king had been criticized, though he said he was not accused of joining in the criticism.

Hamzah has denied any wrongdoing and said he was not part of any conspiracy.
