Hariri: Saudi Ruling in Khashoggi Case in Right Direction


Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri hailed the Saudi Arabian decision regarding the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

“The Saudi judiciary’s decision to hold the accused in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi is a decision in the right direction in order to establish the principles of justice, and to block the attempts at politicization and the campaigns against the Kingdom,” said Hariri via Twitter.

Saudi Arabia on Thursday called for the death penalty against five people accused of murdering the journalist inside the kingdom's Istanbul consulate, but absolved Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of any blame.

Riyadh prosecutors announced indictments against 11 people and said a total of 21 individuals were in custody in connection with the killing.

Khashoggi, who lived in the United States and wrote for The Washington Post and other international media, was killed and dismembered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey on October 2.

MBS ordered the killing, dismembering and dissolving in acid the Khashoggi's body, and Hariri thinks that the Saudi rulers are doing things correctly.... i'm worry about your mental case, Hariri jr.

Hariri just hopes the movement in the right direction will stop before he loses his job.

hehehe reminds me of the song 'Hotel California'

"Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back to the place I was before
'Relax' said the night man,
'We are programmed to receive.
You can check out any time you like,
But you can never leave!'

In my humble unworthy opinion. MBS ordered the kill.
Nevertheless... I don't care much... i am more concerned about those who ordered the killing of Samir Kassir, Gibran Tueini, or the murder attempt on May Chidiac...

are you as a lackey of iran also disgusted with nassrallah when he openly admits all his money, salary, and weapons come from iran?
