Jordan Pandora Papers Jordan's King Abdullah II speaks during a meeting with tribal leader in Al-Qasta, south of Amman, Jordan, Monday, Oct. 4, 2021.
Advisers to the king “spared no effort to conceal his real estate holdings,” the report alleged.
This may have been, in part, because of the contrast between his luxury real estate holdings and Jordan's heavy dependence on international aid and the nation's continued economic crisis.
In the wake of the royal court statement Monday, Amman Net had a new story, other outlets published some details and commentary, and there was limited discussion on social media.
Safadi, a former journalist, denied the story had been suppressed, citing the detailed court statement.
