Jamal Khashoggi

Question for Foreign and Commonwealth Office

UIN HL15514, tabled on 2 May 2019

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the government of Saudi Arabia has permitted access to British Embassy staff to the trial of those accused of the murder of Jamal Khashoggi by the Saudi authorities; if so, whether such staff are permitted to make a report of proceedings; and whether such staff were required to sign non-disclosure agreements to secure such access.

The UK attends the trial as part of a group of international observers. We attend all trials of international concern where host governments permit us to do so. It would not be appropriate for us to comment on an ongoing legal process.
