Germany to bar 18 Saudis allegedly linked to Jamal Khashoggi’s murder from Schengen area
The murder of renowned Journalist Jamal Khashoggi over a month back is still taking its toll. Germany's foreign minister Heiko Maas has declared that the country will bar 18 Saudis from entering its territory and Europe's Schengen passport-free zone over the alleged links to the assassination of the Saudi Journalist.
According to Heiko Mass' admission to the reporters in Brussels, Germany's capital, Berlin has come to a decision "to impose an entry ban on 18 Saudi citizens, who are presumed to be linked with the brutal murder of Jamal Khashoggi." The country has reportedly issued a ban (to the free movement of those 18 Saudis) on the 26-nation zone in close connection with France, which is part of the Schengen area.
However, Mass' office located in Berlin clearly said that they will currently not reveal the names due to German privacy protections.
