OPC Calls for Saudi Arabia to Explain Missing Journalist
NEW YORK, October 6, 2018 — The Overseas Press Club of America formally requests that the Saudi Arabia government explain the whereabouts of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
The veteran journalist, a frequent critic of Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman and the Saudi government, vanished after visiting the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2 to process marriage documents. Khashoggi’s fiancé, Hatice Cengiz, is a Turkish national.
Two Turkish investigators told Reuters on Saturday that they believe Khashoggi was killed while inside the Saudi consulate.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan told reporters at a Sunday news conference in Istanbul that investigators are reviewing surveillance footage and airport records as part of their probe.
Khashoggi, 59, is a contributor to The Washington Post and a former editor of the al-Watan newspaper. The Post printed a blank column on Friday in support of its missing columnist.
The Overseas Press Club is an international association of journalists based in New York City that works to encourage the highest standards in journalism, to educate the next generation of foreign correspondents and to promote international press freedom and the well-being of colleagues in the field.
