The Amiri Diwan had lodged a complaint, claiming that Al- Wasmi posted on his Twitter account accusations without providing evidence.

Lawyer Al-Abdulhadi said Dr. Al-Wasmi highlighted during the investigation that he, as an academic professor specialized in law, directed a criticism aimed at advising the Amiri Diwan against the background of its undertaking projects that are primarily the concern of other ministries.
