International Press Institute reiterates demand for justice in Jamal Khashoggi’s killing

ANKARA

The International Press Institute (IPI) said Friday that there is still no justice for the killing of Jamal Khashoggi in Saudi Arabia's Consulate General in Istanbul in 2018.

“3 years ago tomorrow, Jamal Khashoggi was murdered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Still no justice for this heinous act. Saudi Arabia and MBS have suffered no meaningful consequences. But we haven't forgotten. The IPI network demands justice,” the IPI said on Twitter, referring to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman.

“The IPI global network strongly condemns the continued impunity in this case and we continue to demand full accountability for this atrocious act,” said IPI Deputy Director Scott Griffen.

He said the Saudi regime, “a long-time ally of Western countries, has suffered no meaningful consequences for the brazen elimination of a critical journalist."

Khashoggi, a Saudi dissident and columnist for The Washington Post, was brutally murdered and likely dismembered after being lured by Saudi officials to their consulate in Istanbul in October 2018. While Riyadh initially denied any role in his death, it later sought to pin blame on what it said was a botched rendition operation.

That explanation has been widely rejected.
