En­voy: Riyadh im­mune from crit­i­cism

Iran Daily - - National -

Ira­nian am­bas­sador to Lon­don said Riyadh is im­mune from crit­i­cism of its be­hav­iors in spread­ing ter­ror­ism and vi­o­lat­ing hu­man rights.

“It is for a long time that Riyadh has been im­mune from crit­i­cism against its role in spread of ter­ror­ism and vi­o­la­tion of hu­man rights, Hamid Baei­dine­jad said on Fri­day, adding that it seems even Saudi crit­ics are killed day­time and out­side the king­dom, IRNA re­ported.

He re­ferred to the dis­ap­pear­ance of a Saudi jour­nal­ist in Turkey, and asked when the West will fi­nally give up its dou­ble stan­dard ap­proach to hu­man rights.

Saudi jour­nal­ist Ja­mal Khashoggi, a critic of the Saudi regime and Crown Prince Mo­hammed bin Sal­man in par­tic­u­lar, was last seen 11 days ago en­ter­ing the Saudi Con­sulate in Is­tan­bul.

Turk­ish me­dia aired im­ages of what was de­scribed as a Saudi “hit squad,” al­legedly flown in to kill Khashoggi.
