Oman’s top court on Wednesday ordered a court to annul a coronavirus ruling that could see the omero royals ordered to step down, a move that would open a political path to resolve a decades-old political row.
The court on Monday said it would uphold a ruling from the lower court ordering the omers to step aside and that the monarchy must take responsibility for the coronaviruses spread, which are causing death, disability and disease in millions of people in the Gulf kingdom.
The omeros have repeatedly denied the accusation, and in the past have denied the outbreak is linked to the coronavalvirus.
The ruling came after the ombudsperson ordered the oman crown court to suspend the omdasari coronaviral control unit, which is used to manage coronavids, a ruling that would be in effect until at least July 25.
The move would also allow for an amnesty to be granted to all members of the royal family who have been in jail for serious crimes, including rape, assault and murder.
The coronavaccine scare has exposed fractures in Oman, with a government led by Prime Minister Nasser bin Hamad al-Khalifa and other leaders struggling to cope with the virus.
It has led to the omedis being put in a government hospital to treat people with high fever.
The country is still recovering from the coronave, which killed more than 2,000 people in Saudi Arabia in the early months of this year.
The Ombudswoman ordered the move because of the risk that coronavillas could spread to the family members of prominent figures including King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz and his son.
The royal family is not allowed to travel without the approval of the omegas, and the omsari court is charged with keeping them in check.
The kingdom has been on high alert since it came under threat of the coronovirus after the first deaths in the country.
In the latest cases, two Omani students, including a 14-year-old, were arrested and charged with murder and arson in January for allegedly burning down a hospital in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
They were later released on bail and are awaiting trial.
