AMMAN — Social Development Minister Reem Abu Hassan decided to temporarily close a home for the elderly in Amman for committing several violations, Ministry Spokesperson Fawaz Ratrout said on Wednesday.

He said the care centre was closed for a period not exceeding three months, during which the owner is required to secure another shelter for the residents at his own expense.

The violations include threats to the safety of the residents, hiring unqualified employees and failure to provide programmes to benefit the elderly.
