UN urges Saudi Arabia, Turkey to publish facts on missing journalist

Geneva / The United Nations high commissioner for human rights on Tuesday urged Saudi Arabia and Turkey to make public all they know about the disappearance and alleged assassination of a dissident Saudi journalist who has not been seen since he entered the Saudi consulate building in the Turkish city of Istanbul at the start of the month. 


In a statement, Michelle Bachelet welcomed the fact that joint Saudi and Turkish investigative teams were granted access to the consulate on Monday but urged for there to be a transparent inquiry into the events surrounding the disappearance of Washington Post writer Jamal Khashoggi, who was last seen entering his country’s consulate building on Oct. 2 to fill out divorce paperwork while his fiancée waited outside.

“In view of the seriousness of the situation surrounding the disappearance of Mr. Khashoggi, I believe the inviolability or immunity of the relevant premises and officials bestowed by treaties such as the 1963 Vienna Convention on Consular Relations should be waived immediately,” the UN human rights chief said.

“Under international law, both a forced disappearance and an extra-judicial killing are very serious crimes, and immunity should not be used to impede investigations into what happened and who is responsible,” Bachelet added.

She said it was the responsibility of the Saudi government to clarify what happened to Khashoggi, a vocal critic of the Saudi royal family who fled his home country in Sept. 2017.

United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday traveled to the Sunni kingdom to meet with King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for talks on the obscure events of Oct. 2 amid fraying relations between Riyadh and its Western allies.

US President Donald Trump said Washington was working with Turkey and Saudi Arabia to uncover what happened to Khashoggi, although distanced himself from allegations that the journalist was the victim of a state-sponsored extra-judicial assassination, instead suggesting “rogue killers” were to blame.
