Government under pressure to use Salisbury sanctions against Saudi officials after Khashoggi killing

News - News - 20-10-2018 07:37

Saudi officials found to have been involved in the killing of a prominent journalist in Turkey should be targeted by new sanctions introduced by Theresa May in the wake of the Salisbury attack, MPs and campaigners said on Saturday. Andrew Mitchell, the former international development secretary, led calls for the Magnitsky law, which mirrors similar legislation in the US and Canada, to be used against any individuals complicit in the death of Jamal Khashoggi. The intervention came as the government said it was "considering ... our next steps" after the kingdom admitted on Friday night that Mr Khashoggi, a columnist for the Washington Post, was killed in its consulate in Istanbul. Donald Trump said sanctions were a possibility and that questions remained about the Saudi handling of Khashoggi's death. "No, I am not satisfied until we find the answer," he said after a campaign speech in Nevada. "But it was a big first step, it was a good first step. But I want to get to the answer." However, he warned against scrapping an arms deal with the kingdom that would jeopardise thousands of American jobs. Saudi Arabia said that 15 members of an intelligence squad who flew to Istanbul to kidnap Mr Khashoggi had been arrested, along with three Saudi consulate staff. General Ahmed al-Assiri, the deputy intelligence chief, and Saud al-Qahtani, a close aide to Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince, were both sacked for their role in the operation. Saudi officials insisted Crown Prince Mohammed was not involved. Jamal Khashoggi death | The unanswered questions The kingdom said Mr Khashoggi, a prominent Saudi critic, died in a "fist fight" but Turkey said it would keep investigating and would not a allow a cover up. The Magnitsky law, which was passed as part of the Sanctions Act in May, allows the government to target human rights abusers with asset freezes and visa bans. Mr Mitchell, the former international development secretary, who lobbied Mrs May to introduce the measure after Russia's chemical weapons attack on a former spy in Salisbury, said: "The Magnitsky law is designed to stop human rights violators coming to and using Britain and it doesn't matter where they come from, the law should be applied without fear or favour. "It's very important that Britain acts in concert with its friends and allies around the world." Robert Lacey: What next for the House of Saud? Bill Browder, whose campaigning led to the adoption of equivalent legislation in the US, Canada, and several EU countries, told The Sunday Telegraph: “The extrajudicial killing of Jamal Khashoggi and the official cover-up is exactly the kind of situation that Magnitsky sanctions were designed to address. “The British government should use the Magnitsky Act against members of the Saudi regime who played any role in this murder." Germany, France and the European Union all urged an in-depth investigation to find out what happened to the Washington Post columnist after he entered the consulate on October 2 for documents for his marriage. Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, in a joint statement with her foreign minister, said the Saudi explanation was not enough. "We expect transparency from Saudi Arabia about the circumstances of his death ... The information available about events in the Istanbul consulate is inadequate," the Germans said

Donald Trump says he will pull the United States out of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty with Russia, claiming that Moscow is violating the deal. The president said he wanted a new agreement with Russia and China, although he offered no details of how Moscow had violated the 1987 treaty. “We are going to terminate the agreement and then we are going to develop the weapons,” Mr Trump said – unless a new agreement was forthcoming.

President Donald Trump confirmed Saturday that the United States plans to leave a landmark nuclear weapons treaty with Russia over claims Moscow has violated the deal. The three-decade-old Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, known as the INF, was signed in 1987 by president Ronald Reagan. "We're the ones who have stayed in the agreement and we've honored the agreement, but Russia has not unfortunately honored the agreement, so we're going to terminate the agreement and we're going to pull out," Trump told reporters in Elko, Nevada.
