The head of the Saudi human rights commission, Bandar Al-Aiban, told the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva on Thursday that the Kingdom had taken all necessary measures in the case of the murdered journalist, Jamal Khashoggi.

In his speech, Al-Aiban said three meetings had been held in the Khashoggi case so far, and that Saudi Arabia “categorically rejects any talk about the internationalization of Khashoggi's case."

Al-Aiban said in response to claims in the International media that there were no secret detention centres in Saudi Arabia, adding that they violated laws, and that UN recommendations were against Saudi regulations.

He also said that the Arab Coalition is committed to international human rights law.
