Chalabi was quoted Tuesday by Amman's daily newspaper al-Dustour as saying, "By accepting a royal pardon, I will be implying that I am guilty. That is why I ask to be tried according to the Jordanian law but by a civil court."
Jordan's state security court sentenced Chalabi in 1992 to 22 years in prison after convicting him of embezzling $200 million, which caused the bankruptcy of al-Petra Bank.
Jordan tried to get hold of Chalabi through the Interpol several times without success.
