US bars ex-Saudi diplomat from entering US over Khashoggi murder


The United States on Tuesday barred from entering the country Mohammed al Otaibi, who served as the Saudi consul general in Istanbul when Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was murdered in his consulate in 2018, the US State Department said.

Al-Otaibi previously was the subject of a US asset freeze for his alleged role in Khashoggi’s murder.

The sanctions on al-Otaibi came as the administration of US President Donald Trump announced economic sanctions on individuals suspected of human rights violations in six countries and barred two individuals, including the Saudi national, from entering the country. 

Tuesday’s announcement was made in connection with International Human Rights Day.

The other individuals are from Burma, Pakistan, Libya, Slovakia, South Sudan, Congo and Russia.
