Jordanian lawyers to sue former PM for peace treaty with Israel

From Jordan's Ammon News:
A group of Jordanian lawyers said that they intend to sue former Prime Minister Abdul Salam Majali following comments he made on signing the Wadi Araba Peace Treaty with Israel.

Lawyer Muhammad Khreisat stressed that he will file a lawsuit against the former Prime Minister after the latter made statements admitting that he "was wrong to sign the peace treaty with Israel," and that he regrets signing the agreement.

Khreisat added that Majali has "harmed the Jordanian state" by signing the peace treaty and through his recent admission in statements to the press that he regrets signing it.
