Khashoggi murder was planned and carried out by Saudi state officials

An UN-led inquiry has said Jamal Khashoggi’s murder was planned and carried out by Saudi state officials. Khashoggi was the victim of a “brutal and premeditated killing, planned and perpetrated by officials of the State of Saudi Arabia,” said Agnes Callamard.

The UN expert also noted that Turkey’s efforts to investigate Khashoggi’s murder at Saudi Arabia’s embassy in Istanbul had been “seriously undermined”. Callamard visited Turkey with a team of three experts to investigate the reasons behind the journalist’s murder.

The team was given access to the “chilling and gruesome audio material” obtained by Turkish authorities but hadn’t had the opportunity to fully investigate it.
