An official source at the State Security Court (SSC) denied reports which indicated that the main suspect of the "tobacco case", Awni Mutee, has been released on bail.

Head of the SSC, Military Judge Colonel Dr. Ali Mubaideen agreed to release Wadah Al Hmoud, former Director-General of the Jordan Customs, one of the suspects involved in the "tobacco case".

Hmoud has been released on bail of a value estimated at JD100,000, yet he is still prevented from traveling and his movable and immovable property will remain in custody.
