THE KHA­SHOG­GI CASE

Vocable (Anglais) - - Les sorties -

Last month, the killing of Sau­di Ara­bian jour­na­list Ja­mal Kha­shog­gi sho­cked the press and go­vern­ments world­wide. The pro­minent jour­na­list – a US re­sident and Wa­shing­ton Post co­lum­nist – was killed at the Sau­di Ara­bian consu­late in Is­tan­bul, Tur­key’s ca­pi­tal, on 2 Oc­to­ber, but Sau­di Ara­bia main­tai­ned for a couple of weeks that he was alive. As in­ter­na­tio­nal pres­sure in­crea­sed, the king­dom ad­mit­ted the jour­na­list died in a “fist­fight.” But Tur­kish Pre­sident Re­cep Tayyip Er­do­gan clai­med Tur­key has strong evi­dence the “sa­vage” mur­der was pre­me­di­ta­ted. Ma­ny more world lea­ders have condem­ned Sau­di Ara­bia and de­man­ded a full in­ves­ti­ga­tion, while threa­te­ning to can­cel bu­si­ness and de­fence contracts.
