A Saudi journalist who has been outspoken about his criticisms of the country’s leadership has gone missing while on a visit to the kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul, Turkey. Journalist’s fiancée Hatice Cengiz, and his friends raised concern over his safety.
Saudi authorities announced he had left their consulate before disappearing while Turkey government and his fiancée claimed they had detained him in the consulate. The disappearance of Khashoggi may signal a new level of brazenness by Saudi security forces seeking to silence opponents and critics at home and abroad, however, such accusations haven’t been proven yet.
The journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, a contributor to The Washington Post and self-imposed exile in the United States went to the Saudi consulate along with his fiancée to obtain a document he needed to get married. According to his fiancée, Khashoggi never left the building as she was waiting outside the consulate with his cellphone for security reasons.
According to the Saudi press release, the consulate confirmed that it is carrying out follow-up procedures and coordination with the Turkish local authorities to uncover the circumstances of the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi after he left the consulate building. This release contradicts the Turkish statement where they believe the journalist was still in the consulate.
Khashoggi’s fiancée told media that Khashoggi was innocent as there was no law or lawsuit against him. Neither he was a suspect nor convicted of any crime. He was a journalist who wrote regular columns in the Washington Post criticizing Saudi Arabia’s policies toward Qatar and Canada, the war in Yemen, and a crackdown on dissent.
Khashoggi expressed his concern when he wrote for The Post in September 2017, “I have left my home, my family and my job, and I am raising my voice. To do otherwise would betray those who languish in prison. I can speak when so many cannot.”
