Quote of the week

“We are deeply concerned at the disappearance of Mr. Khashoggi, and at the allegations of state-sponsored murder [and that this is] directly linked to his criticism of Saudi policies in recent years. We reiterate our repeated calls on the Saudi authorities to open the space for the exercise of fundamental rights, including the right to life and of expression and dissent.”

UN Chair-Rapporteur of the Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances, Bernard Duhaime; UN Special Rapporteur on freedom of expression, David Kaye; and UN Special Rapporteur on summary executions, Agnes Callamard comment on the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi (pictured), who has been missing since entering the consulate of Saudi Arabia in Istanbul on 2 October 2018.
