Home Secretary statement on the death of Jamal Khashoggi

The Home Secretary has today (24 October 2018) issued a statement on the death of Jamal Khashoggi.

Home Secretary Sajid Javid said:

“The UK Government condemns in the strongest possible terms the killing of Jamal Khashoggi and has serious concerns around the explanation given by the Saudi authorities. 

“With this in mind, I have decided to take action against those implicated in his death to prevent them from entering the UK.

“We will always be thoughtful and considered in our response, but if the appalling stories are true, they are fundamentally incompatible with our values.”
