- Summary: Evidence suggests Saudi Crown Prince is liable for Khashoggi murder - U.N. expert GENEVA, SWITZERLAND (FILE - JUNE 19, 2019) (REUTERS) ***WARNING: CONTAINS FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY*** (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.N. SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR ON EXTRAJUDICIAL EXECUTIONS, AGNES CALLAMARD, SAYING: "The first important message I think my report highlights is the fact that the execution of Mr. Khashoggi was the responsibility of the state of Saudi Arabia. So far, the reporting and the information provided by various authorities have focused on different individuals. I want to really insist that the responsibility of the state of Saudi Arabia is engaged into that execution, and there has been no demonstration that the state itself of Saudi Arabia has accepted its responsibility for the killings." WHITE FLASH "The focus has been on who ordered the killing. I do not have evidence regarding who ordered the killing. What I do have is evidence suggesting that the responsibilities of high-level officials may be engaged, and therefore is requiring further investigation, in particular of the Crown Prince, for a variety of reasons. The first one is that the people directly implicated in the murder reported to him." Khashoggi's fiancee begs for truth and justice, as Saudi says U.N. report "based on prejudice".
