Jordan’s unprecedented palace drama moves to the courtroom

Khasawneh said his client plans to fight the charges and brushed aside questions about a possible plea deal. During security court trials, defendants stand in a courtroom cage. Awadallah and bin Zaid are expected to be confined to the cage as well, wearing the blue uniforms of detainees, said former state security court president Mohammad al-Afeef who represents Awadallah. The defendants, who are held at an intelligence compound in Amman, face up to 20 years in prison.
