Amman, April 17 (Petra) -- The Jordanian government is still carrying out the construction and restoration projects at the Al Aqsa Mosque, which come in implementation of the Hashemite custodianship of the holy mosque, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Sabah Al Rafie said on Friday.
However, termination may be delayed for custodianships established by a revocable nomination of a custodian (not later than age 25), an irrevocable lifetime gift (not later than age 21), an irrevocable exercise of a power of appointment (not later than age 25), a transfer authorized in a will or trust (not later than age 25), or any other transfer (not later than age 25 or earlier termination).
In several states, the age for termination of at least certain custodianships can, within limits, be changed.
