Space deal put on hold

Herald Sun - - WORLD -

BRI­TISH bil­lion­aire Richard Bran­son says his Vir­gin Group will sus­pend dis­cus­sions with Saudi Ara­bia’s Pub­lic In­vest­ment Fund over a planned $1.4 bil­lion in­vest­ment in the group’s space ven­tures, in light of the dis­ap­pear­ance of Saudi jour­nal­ist Ja­mal Khashoggi.

“What has re­port­edly hap­pened in Turkey around the dis­ap­pear­ance of jour­nal­ist Ja­mal Khashoggi, if proved true, would clearly change the abil­ity of any of us in the West to do busi­ness with the Saudi gov­ern­ment,” Bran­son said.
