Saudi Human Rights official: Brought perpetrators of Khashoggi murder to justice

Interpol issues red notice for Khashoggi killing Saudi Human Rights official: Brought perpetrators of Khashoggi murder to justice
Ellis Copeland | 15 March, 2019, 20:29

Will Saudi Arabia comply with worldwide human rights law and its membership obligations by immediately releasing all human rights activists jailed for advocating peaceful reform, removing government-enforced travel restrictions for women, declaring a moratorium on the death penalty, starting with those convicted of non-violent drug offenses, and fully cooperating with the UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions on her inquiry into the Khashoggi murder, and with the Yemen Group of Eminent Experts?

President of the Human Rights Commission of Saudi Arabia, Bandar bin Mohammed Al-Aiban, pictured in November, told the UN Human Rights Council on Thursday the accused killers behind Jamal Khashoggi's death are being brought to justice. He gave no names or details.

Whereas the United Nations and U.S. intelligence agencies have implicated Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in the murder, the US' report Thursday stopped shy of accusing their long-time ally's leadership.

"Justice in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia operates pursuant to global law and it does so in all transparency", Aiban told the Geneva forum during a review of Saudi's rights record.

"We are indeed horrified by what has happened pursuant to this unfortunate accident and we have taken those measures required for us to resolve this heinous crime", he said.

Both women have said that they thought they were playing a prank , and had no idea their actions would have deadly consequences. The presiding judge said the defendant was not "physically and mentally" well enough to continue with the proceedings.


The kingdom, he said, will not accept calls to "internationalize" the legal proceedings, which would be perceived as foreign interference with domestic affairs.

The Red Notice was issued on March 1 upon Turkey's request, local NTV channel quoted Turkish Justice Ministry officials as saying. He was killed inside Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul on October 2. "We find it hard to understand why an official working in the area of human rights would possibly be unsettled by efforts to shed light on all aspects of the Khashoggi murder", the Turkish presidency said.

The Saudi public prosecutor's spokesman said late past year that 11 Saudis had been indicted and referred for trial over the case, with authorities seeking the death penalty for five.

The Saudi government has rejected key recommendations on critically important human rights problems, including the immediate release of all human rights defenders arbitrarily detained. Although Saudi prosecutors are seeking the death penalty over the incident, he assured that those found guilty were not being tortured.
