International Press Institute calls for justice for Khashoggi’s murder


The International Press Institute drew attention to the fact that justice for journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was assassinated in the Consulate General of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in Istanbul three years ago, was not served.

It called on this country to hold the state responsible for the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.


The Saudi journalist Khashoggi, who was killed on October 2, 2018, responded in a statement issued by the Vienna-based International Press Institute (IPI) to the fact that the criminals had not been punished.

The statement stressed that there has been no tangible development in the Khashoggi killing process and throughout the period that has passed since the incident.

The statement also included the views of IPI Deputy Director Scott Griffin on the incident, “We condemn the continued impunity (of those responsible) in this case.”

Griffin confirmed that three years have passed since Khashoggi was murdered in a horrific manner on the orders of the Saudi administration.


Griffin noted that the international community has issued many statements and promises to end impunity for crimes committed against journalists:

“But there is no tangible price to be paid by Saudi Arabia, a longtime ally of Western countries, for the brazen elimination of a journalist who criticizes it.

At IPI, we condemn the continued impunity in this case, and will continue to demand full accountability.”
