The gruesome murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi should be the subject of global investigation, so says Amnesty International.
The rights group made the call while marking 100 days since Khashoggi’s was murdered with a demonstration at Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.
“It is important for the Turkish authorities to keep up their calls for an independent UN investigation, but really the whole international community needs to commit to this so that justice is done,” Amnesty’s Andrew Gardner told Al Jazeera.
“The murder of Khashoggi, which happened before the eyes of the whole world, should be the subject of an international investigation,” Goksu Ozahishali, the organisation’s campaign manager in Turkey, told reporters.
“With this symbolic activity, we are reiterating our demand of justice for Khashoggi,” she added.
Recall that Khashoggi went missing on October 2, 2018 after a visit to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and it was later established that he was murdered inside the consulate by a Saudi hit squad in a rogue operation.
