London: Britain said today, Friday, that it continues to raise the issue of the killing of Jamal Khashoggi in its contacts with the government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and considers his death a horrific crime.

In response to a CIA report that said that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman approved an operation to arrest or kill the dissident journalist Khashoggi, the British Foreign Office said, “The United Kingdom has always been clear that the killing of Jamal Khashoggi is a horrific crime.”

“We called for a thorough, credible and transparent investigation to hold those responsible to account and impose sanctions on 20 Saudis involved in the killing,” she added.

She pointed out that “the foreign minister raised the issue during his visit to Riyadh last year, and we continue to raise the matter in our contacts with the Saudi government.”
