Beyond Covid-19: The struggle for justice for Jamal Khashoggi

8 May, 2020 | Press Releases

In this particular time, everyone’s eyes are on the COVID-19 emergency – rightfully so. The emergency presents us with new challenges, which have a deep impact on global politics and society. While our daily lives may feel like they are somewhat “on hold”, human rights violations have not been suspended: on the contrary, they may even intensify due to the implications of this pandemic. 

Therefore, we decided to organise a weekly panel discussion to not forget about important human rights issues, bringing them directly to peoples’ houses through easily accessible social media.  

This week’s “Beyond COVID-19” broadcast entitled “The struggle for justice for Jamal Khashoggi” will feature as special guest Hatice Cengiz, fiancée of the late Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, murdered in 2018. In this episode, Ms Cengiz will talk about how the COVID19 pandemic is affecting the long and cumbersome process for justice for Jamal, also highlighting the challenges and needs that have been met in such a difficult context.

The live stream is on Friday 8 May 2020, at 19.00 GMT+1 (Brussels time).
