Member of Parliament Imad Al-Adwan, who was arrested by the Israeli Occupation authorities, is facing several accusations directed by the Public Prosecutor of the State Security Court (SSC) after he was charged for allegedly smuggling weapons and gold.
According to a source, Adwan was interrogated by the SSC Prosecutor regarding the seizure of firearms, gold, electronic cigarettes, and other items at the Jericho crossing, known as the King Hussein Bridge, by the Israeli Occupation.
The accusations against Adwan include exporting weapons with the intent to use them illegally and engaging in actions that disturb public order and threaten societal security.
His defense attorney, Ali Al-Mobaideen, stated that Adwan is in good health and was allowed to have his attorney present during his interrogation by the State Security Prosecutor.
The case is still under investigation, and no request for the release of the client has been submitted during this stage.
On April 23, 2023, Hebrew media reported a Jordanian Member of Parliament has been detained after attempts to smuggle a large number of weapons through the Allenby Bridge into the occupied West Bank.
