“In this explosive book the unpublished papers that reveal the background of the Khashoggi murder are disclosed”: this is how we read in the presentation of ” The Khashoggi case ‘, in the book by Lillo and Pacelli the unpublished papers on the background’ by Marco Lillo and Valeria Pacelli with the Paper First Publishing House. “Everything Matteo Renzi should read before talking about ‘Saudi renaissance’, reads the subtitle of the book by the investigative journalist and deputy director of Fatto Quotidiano and the journalist and correspondent for ‘Il Fatto Quotidiano’. And again:” The scene went around the world, Matteo Renzi on the stage of the Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh with Mohammad Bin Salman. The leader of Italia Viva – who receives an annual fee of 80 thousand dollars plus benefits for participating in the Board of the same FII – on that occasion called the Arab country “the possible cradle of the new Renaissance by calling the landlord ‘my friend’ “.” But – they continue in the presentation – before making friends you need to know your interlocutors. If we talk about the Saudi prince, in fact, we cannot ignore the story of Jamal Khashoggi, journalist and signature of the Washington Post, killed in the consulate of Riyadh in Istanbul on 2 October 2018. The shadow of Bin Salman stretches behind that operation, which ended with a murder. “Among the unpublished papers that reveal the background of the murder, the full report by Agnès Callamard, the speaker of the Hcr of the United Nations who investigated the case and the interview with Callamard herself, later appointed general secretary of Amnesty International. The report from the Office of the Director of US Intelligence is also published in full, indicating Mohammad bin Salman as the instigator of the kidnapping or even killing of Khashoggi. Finally, there are also exclusive talks with the victim’s girlfriend, Hatice Cengiz and Bryan Vogel, director of the beautiful docu-film The Dissident.
