Jamal Khashoggi’s killing was ‘extrajudicial execution’ - United Nations expert


That adage fits Vince McMahon's sports entertainment juggernaut on Thursday, when the Stamford, Ct., -based company announced it will go forward with its "Crown Jewel" event in Saudi Arabia on November 2, despite the worldwide disgust for the premeditated murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Meanwhile, Khashoggi's eldest son has left Saudi Arabia, a source close to the family told CNN.

They chose the consulate, where the 59-year-old Washington Post contributor was killed on 2 October, to hold the first gathering of the newly-formed Jamal Khashoggi Friends Association.

"We are pleased that is the case", Palladino said, reiterating that the United States is continuing to press for "all the relevant facts" in the killing of Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

"Second, the individuals present at the time of the disappearance and the alleged killing were representatives of the state".

"The individuals who did this, did this outside the scope of their authority".

In his first public comments on the case, Prince Mohammed, the kingdom's de factor ruler, this week denounced the "repulsive" murder for which 18 Saudis including a senior intelligence officer have been detained. The resolution also called on member countries to halt exports of "surveillance systems and other dual-use items that may be used in Saudi Arabia for the purposes of repression".

Callamard added: "it will now be up to a thorough, impartial investigation to determine how far up this goes and who was the ultimate decision maker".

"My delegation would like to denounce the statement by the special rapporteur".

U.S. CIA Director Gina Haspel, who traveled to Turkey to investigate Khashoggi's death, has reportedly listened to the audio recording of his torture and killing, according to pro-government media in Turkey and The Washington Post.

President Donald Trump had initially said that explanation was credible, but in recent days expressed doubts, calling it "the worst coverup ever".

On Sunday she told reporters at her party headquarters that "I agree with all those who say when it comes to our already limited arms exports [to Saudi Arabia] that they can not take place in the current situation". "But there should have never been an execution or a cover-up because it should have never happened".

'I believe the new Europe is the Middle East, ' he said.

"During the quarter, we remained keenly focused on deepening engagement with our global fan base by delivering compelling original content across media platforms", said Vince McMahon, WWE Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

Trump told the Wall Street Journal in an interview this week that he didn't think Saudi King Salman knew about the killing in advance.

U.S. senators have urged WWE to rethink its relationship with the Saudis.

"The US is deeply engaged in this war".
