Jordanian former minister remains in detention - state news agency

Jordan's former finance minister Bassem Awadallah remains in detention as part of ongoing investigations, the state news agency cited an official source as saying on Thursday.

Awadallah, who also served as chief of Jordan's royal court, was one of several people the government said were detained as part of an investigation into activities aimed at destabilising the country.

The official said reports circulating on social media that Awadallah had left Jordan were not true.
