Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Journalist disappeared after visit to Saudi consulate in Istanbul

A Saudi journalist and well-known critic of the Saudi government has disappeared in Turkey. Jamal Khashoggi was not seen after a visit on Tuesday to the consulate of Saudi Arabia in Istanbul.

The Turkish authorities suspect that he is being imprisoned at the consulate. Khashoggi had an appointment for wedding papers there on Tuesday. His Turkish fiancée waited for him, but did not see him come out. He is also not to be seen on camera images, according to the Turks. According to the consulate, he left after his appointment.

Khashoggi has been living in the United States for more than a year and works for The Washington Post, among other media. He regularly criticized the policies of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Major concerns

In his first piece for The Washington Post he wrote that he felt compelled to move to the US, because living in his home country was made impossible. His fiancée says to The Wall Street Journal that he also did not feel completely secure in America.

A colleague of Khashoggi writes that she is very worried and that everyone is doing their best to find him. “I will not find peace until you are safe.”
