The murder of Jamal Khashoggi: will justice ever be served?

Our foreign correspondent Jonathan Rugman is the author of “The Killing in the Consulate”.

On Friday 28th September 2018, Jamal Khashoggi visited the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to get some documents so he could marry his fiancée. He was told he would have to return to pick up the documents a few days later.

He visited the consulate again on 2nd October, but this time he did not leave.

Today’s podcast is about justice. If a man is cut into pieces inside a government building – if his body is still yet to be found – if it is beyond reasonable doubt who did it and who ordered it – why does justice still elude his fiancé and his family?

Our foreign correspondent, Jonathan Rugman, is the author of “The Killing in the Consulate” and explains why, despite a recent US Intelligence report revealing that the order to capture and to kill came from the Crown Prince, he will not be sanctioned.
