Ahlam Al-Tamimi under pressure: her husband is “not desirable”

Oman | The new US ambassador to Jordan, Henry Wooster, who arrived in the kingdom on the seventeenth of last August, was not late in opening the file of the freed captive Ahlam Al-Tamimi. In conjunction with Wooster’s nomination for the position of ambassador extraordinary to Amman, he testified before the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee last June, to spread widely his response to Senator Ted Cruz regarding Tamimi, whose case was raised by some lawmakers to renew their demand to hand it over to Washington through a letter. Directly to the Jordanian embassy there. Worcester said, at the time, that his country had “multiple options and different types of influence to secure the delivery of Arif Ahmed Al-Tamimi’s dreams.”Although Worcester’s responses were balanced, whether during his talk about the importance of the Jordanian role or continuing to provide support to the kingdom (due to his long experience in the US embassy as a chargé d’affaires for two years in which the position of ambassador remained vacant), Tamimi’s case was different. Although questions have been raised about the nature of pressure on the kingdom to hand it over, especially with the absence of a Jordanian legal clause that allows for this, Worcester wrote: “We will continue to involve Jordanian officials at all levels, not only in this case (Tamimi), but in the matter of the extradition treaty on a large scale. Wider ». He added, “The generosity of the United States to Jordan in its foreign military financing, as well as economic support and other aid, is carefully calibrated to protect and advance the set of American interests in Jordan and the region.” The last sentence directly refers to the huge aid that Amman receives annually, in an amount exceeding $ 1.3 billion.

The pressure on the Tamimi family coincides with the appointment of the American and Israeli ambassadors, respectively

Therefore, it seems that Jordan has chosen an indirect way to expel Tamimi and evade the pressures regarding her, as it has decided to stop renewing the residency of her husband, who described the decision as surprising, especially with the presence of an official US demand to extradite his wife, and therefore sees his deportation as direct pressure on Ahlam. Nizar, who is also a freed prisoner, said, “It was better for the parties that demanded to leave me to assume their responsibilities towards Jordanian citizenship and provide protection for her and her family, and remain insisting on the legal decision that was previously issued to categorically refuse to extradite her.” As for Ahlam, she appealed to King Abdullah II to intervene to solve the problem of deporting her husband, who seemed to understand that she went to Qatar last Thursday due to the Qatari rapprochement – “Hamas”.
Internally, this issue does not seem to be the focus of public opinion, with the preoccupation with the outbreak of the Corona virus in the country and the deterioration of the economic situation, in parallel with the announcement of the names of the new Senate (the King’s Council) and the approaching parliamentary elections in which the Muslim Brotherhood will participate this time (after it arrived Strongly worded warning in this regard) and the nationalist and left-wing opposition parties, as well as the consequences of the Jordanian government submitting its resignation in preparation for naming a new prime minister, after announcing the results of the candidates. This also comes amid regional developments and reactions to overt Gulf normalization, which coincided with the appointment of “Sels” for a new Israeli ambassador to Amman at the end of last month.
