The death of Saudi dissident journalist Jamal
Khashoggi warrants further UN investigations, his fiancee Hatice
Cengiz said on Tuesday on the sidelines of the UN Human Rights
Council in Geneva.
At the council on Wednesday, UN rights expert Agnes Callamard is set to present her report into Khashoggi's death inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October. Callamard has concluded that Riyadh was responsible for his "deliberate, premeditated execution."
"The truth is out and it is clear. The findings of the report are a call for action," Turkish writer Cengiz said, speaking in her native language through an English translator.
Cengiz attended a discussion that was organized by the Brussels-based group No Peace Without Justice, whose causes include international criminal accountability and democracy in the Middle East.
Callamard, the UN special rapporteur on extrajudicial killings, said at the same event that "silence is not an option."
"Silence is feeding injustice," she added.
