UN Says Saudi’s Khashoggi Verdict ‘Parody of Justice’

TEHRAN ( Iran News ) – UN human rights investigator Agnes Callamard on Monday called the Saudi prosecutor’s verdict on the 2018 murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul a parody of justice which spared high-level plotters. A Saudi court on Monday overturned five death sentences over dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s killing, a final ruling in the case that saw the Washington Post columnist killed and dismembered by a Saudi hit squad, Aljazeera reported. The court handed 20-year sentences to five people and three others were sentenced to between seven to 10 years, state media reported
