The Muslim Brotherhood referred a senior member to an internal court for accepting a royal appointment to the senate despite the movement's boycott of last month's parliamentary elections, The Jordan Times reported.
Abdul Majeed Thneibat is the former head of Jordan's Muslim Brotherhood. He will face charges of violating the group's regulations, spokesman Jameel Abu Baker said Thursday (December 9th).
"We decided to refer Thneibat to court for agreeing to accept this post," Abu Baker said.
The Brotherhood's political arm, the Islamic Action Front, is the largest opposition party in Jordan.
