Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was the victim of an ‘extrajudicial execution’.
That’s the assessment of Agnes Callamard, the United Nations’ Special Rapporteur on Summary or Arbitrary Killings.
She’s pointing the finger directly at the top level of the Saudi leadership.
Faisal Fahad, the Saudi representative on the UN committee, said Callamard had overstepped her remit with her comments. “Kindly do not give us any personal opinions in this official meeting,” he said.
