1:06 pm
a malicious plot to undermine the king. no damn moonshiner the one about we reiterate how confidence and pride in our royal monarch the king all behind ok standing firmly against any malicious treacherous hand a king is a red line so i was ok. lauren manley has more. than i did in a video past the media by his lawyer jordan's prince hamza says this may be the last time he can contact anyone he says he's been ordered by the army's chief to stay at home and that his phone and internet are being cut off he criticized jordan's leaders for corruption and tonight being part of any conspiracy. agenda there is no outside agenda there is nothing on my part to affect the country or outside plotting from behind the scenes we listen to these accusations over and over again this is only in order to make a smokescreen over the retreat and retraction that we witness in the country every
1:07 pm
day in our beloved country. when. the video is released came shortly after due to any in state t.v. an ounce multiple arrests of former senior officials on saturday night jordan's army chief denied the prince how it was among them but it didn't mention the arrest of the former head of the royal court bus and our dollar. was a long time. of the cheating and was at one time a minister of finance and has been arrested along with several others that were very close to the heart or it is not clear exactly what the role that prince. played and there but clearly there has been any division inside the court that has led the security forces to consider this a danger to the stability of jordan's government. prince the
1:08 pm
hoff brother of king abdullah when they found the king hussein passed away in 1909 king abdullah was crowned and prince hamza became the crown prince of jordan however king abdullah stripped him of this title 5 years later following sashay through arrests regional leaders including the g.c.c. were quick to express solidarity with king abdullah security personnel have been deployed in the capital amman and other parts of the country there are still more questions than answers about the highly unusual arrests in what's long says it a stable country in the middle east about unmanly al-jazeera. let's take a closer look at some of the criticisms that have been leveled against jordan's rulers the country is a parliamentary monarchy meaning the king is the head of government and he asked to abide by the constitution but otherwise he is responsible for most high level
1:09 pm
decisions last month king abdullah ordered the health minister to resign and demanded an investigation after an oxygen shortage at a government hospital killed 8 people critics say it's yet another example of corruption and mismanagement it's a sentiment which has been quietly bubbling in jordan in 28 high unemployment and rising taxes forced thousands to protest and the situation has gotten worse since the pandemic let's discuss jordan with the would could taboos the director general of community media network is joining us from jordan's capital our man thanks for speaking to us on al-jazeera mr so it'll be difficult to know exactly what's going on from the local press in jordan which is of course just publishing official statements but what do you read into the situation and to into these developments and what's the reaction in jordan. thank you that there is a lot of. lack of information in their state run media is really 10 thing except
1:10 pm
ricky the official statements which are very very truncated and we don't know really what's behind this certainly there is no who or plot or anything like that they i would i would think that there's some kind of an internal criticism to the king by his step brother which caused all of this what sort of criticism we have also just heard the senate come out and express full solidarity with the king no surprise there i guess but what could have triggered the arrests and also the house arrest of prince hunza. the the. former crown prince prince has it has been making the rounds specially in tribal areas and that's a kind of a red herring for the government and for the king it's these are the strongest supporters of the monarchy and they're the ones who are more courageous in standing up to the 2 government corruption so i think that's what really upset people in the
1:11 pm
palace and i really think that they overstepped it by arresting and putting him under 10 arrests because that video that was released actually has made the prince much more popular and made prince hands a don't be a darling of those opponents who think that their government can be run much better so we expect additional arrests. you know i don't think so i don't think that this is a serious. case there is no security people have been arrested you can't have a cool unless there are security people involved so i don't think and you know this whole idea of a plot there or a pool is just not true there is there is clearly. an internal issue that's come out in the public and i think in a way it has turned out not in the favor of some of the people who began this process of i rests we've heard from officials we just heard from the senate we've
1:12 pm
also heard from queen nude who is prince hammes as mother of course but we've not heard from the king. is that a surprise no i don't think you'll hear from the king for some time i think and less and then till we know much more us and 2 things if if there is there anything coming out of the investigations then then maybe if the king would speak out but i doubt that the king would speak out on this are there any implications for the region regional countries did speak out and they did express solidarity with the king of jordan. you know i think not a you know there is lots of speculation that says certain countries are behind the do whatever it is behind it but it's as as we know more aid really turning out to be more of an internal issue that will be so many teacup and then a few days later will forget all about that. in jordan of course a vital ally often off the united states and is this going to be tricky for
1:13 pm
joe biden to manage i mean you keep saying that it's quite local but a lot of countries have already weighed in. yeah i think that countries weighed in because i think they want to remove any accusations that they're involved. i think that by going to administration it will be more for we form in jordan which is something that by the administration is committed to on their human rights agenda so i think what we will hear more encourage meant for political reform which something that king promised if you years ago but really slow down on and i think. and then make actually make the country more. and it we hope it will be over soon that would khattab thank you so much for speaking to us from amman in jordan. plenty more head on the al-jazeera news hour including. fighting for democracy more

1:18 pm
not only to how domestic political actors control media outlets including censorship but also how for an author a guardian states are involved and this is primarily china excuse me for mainly irrational but also increasingly china and they do say we need to use information by stopping them seeing informal political and economic links to the local content creators and it serves your thoughts and soon how would russia wants to see the outcome of this election if they live they want to see boris off. to. its good missile thank you very recently with this can knowing the revelations that came out of it is very interesting to see that there is heightened russian intelligence activity in the country nor there it's a swathe variance in their perceptions of the west and their orientation of the ways and this is definitely a very important factor but. it is important also to say that this scandal appeared

a big surge in infections that is essentially has been going on since may and february. believe it has to do with this variant that was originally found in brazil and that is hitting harder younger people middle aged people that have now been vaccinated yet this also proving deadly are in cheated very complicated situation that's why chile is under a full lockdown they also closed their borders which will remain closed throughout the month of april and the rest of the region the situation is much worse when it comes to the vaccine roll out only a fraction of people have been vaccinated so for the coming months especially as most countries are going through a 2nd and 3rd wave again social distancing the use of masks and probably new lockdown will be the way forward on the pandemic has left many of brazil's

action the conference wants to mobilize support for countries that are most vulnerable to the effects of climate change governments are also expected to commit to stronger emission cuts in the 2015 paris agreement nations agreed to limit global warming up by 2 degrees celsius above pre-industrial levels but those efforts have largely stalled because of the coronavirus pandemic the sweet finish on chafee who's the executive director of the arab youth climate movement qatar he's joining us from thanks for speaking to us on al-jazeera so how significant is this meeting taking place in the united arab emirates already very significant given this is a regional dialogue i think it is a great way to have a hold to go to the middle east countries and. looking up to the top 20 thanks to have old country from the minority didn't come up with the. commitment right so how do they build a momentum going into that really important meeting to be held in scotland later
1:33 pm
this year. what is that and this is crucial well and it will be a crucial part and they want to see what are the commitment each country would be making in terms of admission and also like how john kerry was mentioning we just don't have to shut down but how to mobilize and get more support and more jobs created and to how the transition towards non radio resources can be kept alive and bringing more green baize jobs in the middle east the countries in the gulf region are known to have a large carbon footprint like the u.a.e. for example as you know has one of the highest per capita carbon footprints in the world. other countries here regionally are on the right track to tackle this challenge of both because well 'd given the fact. i wouldn't say on the right track but given that the momentum is giving them more place to enhance in terms of the transportation sector the industries which are going on based on nonrenewable and
1:34 pm
also the renewable sector have been growing in a rather fast pace in time and the reste and announcement from the saudi arabia i mean the new green initiatives are quite promising so i wouldn't say the right place but on the right track at this point of time how do organizations like yours the arab youth climate movement which you belong to how do they oppress or how do you guys pressure countries. well that was criminal minds a nonprofit to you pled organization unlike in the not global not to be a dog an addition here closely work with the community and also with the government to see how their commitments are in line with the kind of thinking and the most of the time what we do is to build up a community based initiative that not only provide an understanding of what is happening i don't on the same time working with the government with some of the initiatives that held them to build a capacity and also build a partnership that is very much necessary and moving towards i'm keeping up their
1:35 pm
promises as palettes agreement signatory countries and what's at stake if action is done well after you know that in the middle east is most impacted by the climate change and delay so it means more issues to the country's economic so what the countries can do is at this time it's been more jobs in the renewable sector that is economic is moving forward and also the transmission and another transition towards the non carbon sectors like to reach them and hydro powers all getting hydrogen as a new fuel it is also have been quite discussed these days so the attention like an atomic in terms of the coming a coming world cap where they want to showcase us carbon neutral will capture this other way of how the countries in the gulf can contribute like the countries in the world and so the way forward is quite promising but i think in terms of emissions they have to be a clear agenda how they're going to really use that in the coming days ok thank you
