AMMAN — The Amman Criminal Court on Thursday turned down the fifth bail petition filed by the defence team of businessman Haitham Dahleh, who is being held at the Jweideh Correctional and Rehabilitation Centre since September 25. Dahleh faces charges of abuse of office and purchasing companies worth JD34 million with money from the United Group Holdings. The court also rejected a bail petition filed by the lawyer of Jamil Ortani, who was arrested last week in connection with the case.
