Disappeared Saudi journalist’s last work talks about press freedom in Middle East

Turkey conducts a search operation in the premises of the Saudi consulate located in Istanbul.

Turkey conducts a search operation in the premises of the Saudi consulate located in Istanbul.

It is really a coincident. The Saudi journalist, who was allegedly killed inside the Saudi consulate, located in Istanbul in Turkey, at the behest of the Saudi regime for being a fearless critic of the regime, has in his last piece of work written for the Washington Post (in which he was a columnist) appealed for the freedom for press in the Middle East region, which includes the most powerful Arabian country of Saudi Arabia. The missing journalist’s senior, to whom the journalist was supposed to report, has claimed that it would be the last report he edited for the journalist. The media has explained that the publication of the report was delayed as they firmly believed that the missing journalist would return. But, the media has said that their hopes died down.

Recently, Turkey informed the world that they recovered some video evidence from the Saudi consulate located in Istanbul capable enough to justify its argument that the journalist was killed inside the embassy.

Earlier, there were reports that the Saudi regime, which had initially denied any involvement in the missing, was preparing to admit that the journalist was accidentally killed during a interrogation gone wrong.

Anyway, the US has requested Turkey to hand over the evidence. The West, particularly the US and European countries, are very angry about the alleged killing carried out by the Saudi Arabia.

If the case is proved against the Saudi, it may face serious after-effects including sanctions. Several reputed politicians and journalists have requested an international investigation in the issue.

Where is Jamal Khashoggi?
