Abstract

Special Program on the occasion of the death of Bahdjat Talhouni who was respected by all because of his honesty, loyalty and dedication to work and to the homeland. As a man of confidence of his superiors as well as his subordinates, he was a model for all. Graduated in law from Damascus, he became a judge; he has held senior positions in the judiciary: he was Chief of the Royal Cabinet, Minister of the Interior and Justice and Prime Minister at different times. He left works in various fields, including education. Talhouni witnessed major moments of the history of Jordan, under the reign of Her Majesty King Hussein Bin Tallal, such as the 'arabization' of the Jordanian army in 1956, after the expulsion of sixty British officers. He supported the King in his policy towards the Palestinian cause.
