Doha Centre for Media Freedom (DCMF) is deeply concerned about Jamal Khashoggi, a prominent Saudi journalist who has not been seen since entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2, 2018.

The Centre is following Khashoggi’s disappearance case closely with great concern and calls on all concerned parties to disclose his whereabouts immediately, in light of the latest news reports suggesting that he has been killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
DCMF hope that the ongoing investigations will reveal the truth about Khashoggi’s disappearance and its circumstances, and enlighten the international public opinion on this case which developments are followed worldwide with great interest.

DCMF demands answers about the fate of Saudi journalist Khashoggi

The Centre urged the United Nations (UN) and all human rights organizations, especially Reports Without Boarders (RSF), The International Press Institute (IPI) and The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) to exert more pressure on the concerned parties in order to reveal the truth about Khashoggi’s fate and ensure that international justice mechanisms are used to prevent impunity.
DCMF reiterates its rejection of any restrictions on the freedom of opinion and expression, as well as any attempts to confiscate people’s right to address issues of public interest, considering that these practices go against the basis on which free and independent societies can be built.
Khashoggi’s disappearance case highlights the crackdown on the freedom of opinion and expression, as well as the tremendous violations against journalists and writers. These violations must be dealt with in accordance with the international laws, universal and human rights covenants which prohibit them.
