AMMAN —AlGhad— The resignation of Royal Advisor Issam Abdul Rauf Rawabdeh was accepted today, Wednesday, by Royal Decree, effective as of the 2nd of February, 2018.

Whether or not his resignation is related to the incident regarding the unlawful detention and ticketing of a bus driver two days ago is not clear.

Social media reported that a high ranking official with the Royal Hashemite Court, according to the bus driver, ordered the unlawful arrest of the driver.

The incident was met by an overwhelming public rejection and it was generally regarded as exploitation of power by the royal official.
