UN expert links death of Journalist Jamal Khashoggi to Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince

An independent United Nations rights expert has linked the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi to the Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince.

According to reports, the UN special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions Agnes Callamard said she had “determined that there is credible evidence, warranting further investigation of high-level Saudi Officials individual liability, including the Crown Prince’s.”

Similarly, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres should launch an international criminal investigation into the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi last October, an independent rights expert said Wednesday.

In a fresh report on the killing, UN special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions Agnes Callamard urged Guterres to “initiate a follow-up criminal investigation into the killing of Mr. Khashoggi to build-up strong files on each of the alleged perpetrators and identify mechanisms for formal accountability, such as an ad hoc or hybrid tribunal.”
