Responding to reports alleging that missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi recorded his killing on an Apple watch, Liberal Democrat Leader Vince Cable said:
“While we must not be quick to judge, the weight of evidence against the Saudi Arabia regime has become too great to ignore.
“I commend the likes of Sir Richard Branson for putting what is right before profit and freezing certain business ties with the country.
“The Conservatives must follow suit and cut back on very heavy and dangerous trade and security reliance on Saudi Arabia, until the regime gives answers on what happened.
“If Britain can be justifiably outraged about the deliberate, organised attack on Russian dissidents in our country, we should be equally concerned about what appears to be a similar attack in Istanbul.”
