Richard Masters, CEO of the Premier League, he has shown solidarity with Hatice Cengiz, girlfriend of Jamal Khashoggi, journalist riyal killed in mysterious circumstances, the October 2, 2018. The woman has asked the Premier League to ban to fund public investment in Saudi Arabia to get their hands on Newcastle. The lawyer of the widow Kashoggi has confirmed that there have been two letters to the Masters to him, urging him to block the deal. Requests that were taken into consideration.
Kashoggi, a dissident saudi who has lived in exile in the United States, has been seen for the last time to go to the saudi consulate in Istanbul, from which it is never more came out. Investigators believe that the journalist was killed and quartered within the building. His body has never been found. Kashoggi had been very critical of the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammad bin Salman, and the king Salman. The prince has denied being involved in the killing, calling the crime “heinous”.
The present state of things, the rules would not allow the passage of deliveries to Newcastle “in The light of the available evidence and credible about his involvement in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi,” as has declared the lawyer Rodney Dixon Telegraph.
About Masters answered: “they Are extremely supportive with the location of his client but are not able to give further details than those that we have already given in this regard. Our process is strictly private and confidential and should remain so. However, I assure you and your customer that his grievances have been fully taken into account in our process”. Situation that seems to reassure the lady Cengiz, by his own admission always the Telegraph. Recall that the handover of Newcastle has another problem, related to piracy: a report of the World Trade Organization (WTO), the international organization created to supervise the numerous trade agreements between the member states. The document is 123 pages, shows that behind the spread of pirated sports events in the Middle East would be Saudi Arabia. What, however, challenged in recent months by beIN Sports. The Country, through the Fund for public investments has offered 300 thousand pounds to the current owner of Newcastle, Mike Ashley. And the passage of deliveries is bound by the “clear” of the Premier League, which will ensure the soundness and transparency of the new buyer.
