2019-02-07 | ?? UN rapporteur: Khashoggi murder 'perpetrated' by Saudi officials | Al Jazeera English

The UN human rights investigator leading the international inquiry into the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi said evidence showed he was a victim of "a brutal and premeditated killing, planned and perpetrated by officials of the state of Saudi Arabia".

Special Rapporteur Agnes Callamard said on Thursday her three-member team had access to part of "chilling and gruesome audio material" of the murder obtained by Turkish intelligence agencies.

Saudi Arabia also "seriously undermined" Turkey's efforts to investigate Khashoggi's killing at its Istanbul consulate, said a UN statement.
