Saudi dissidents fear 'long arm' of state after Khashoggi murder

Washington (AFP) - The murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi has sent a chill through exiled dissidents, with many revealing discreet government attempts to lure them to their embassies as an apparent "trap" to return them to the kingdom.

Khashoggi, a critic of powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, in what sources close to the government have said was likely an authorised rendition that went wrong.

Saudi exiles in three different countries have recounted what appeared to be official attempts to bait them into the kingdom's diplomatic missions, exposing them to potentially the same fate as Khashoggi.

Omar Abdulaziz, a 27-year-old Saudi activist exiled in Canada, said he was approached earlier this year by Saudi officials who urged him to visit their embassy with them to collect a new passport.

1. How about long knives of state? Wasn't that the purpose of the murder, to scare off dissent? nt

3. That Saudi trash has the perfect cover of using Diplomatic pouches

for getting rid of body parts that can't be searched by law enforcement. If I was a Saudi dissident I'd be nervous too.

These dissidents need to get their act together and mount a coup of the House of Saud, or just outright kill that MSB SOB.
