Newspapers and radio stations in France, India, Pakistan, Cameroon, Nigeria, Ghana, and elsewhere have also referred to the arbitrary arrest of Bouahrin and the UN's demand for his release.
The media said that Bouhmari's lawyer had urged the UN rapporteur to ask the Moroccan authorities to enable him to phone him, and to see letters between him and Khashoggi between October 2017 and January 2018 are likely to be relevant to the investigation by the UN commissioner.
Tawfiq Bouachrien confirmed that his trial in the case of sexual assault was "political" and linked to his opening remarks, which were criticized by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
A statement issued by the lawyer Dixon said Khashoggi called on Bouahrin, in telephone calls, to "be very cautious after a series of articles published about the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman."
The statement issued by Dixon, details of the contacts between Khashoggi and Bohashrin, and the warnings of the Saudi writer to the founder of Akhbar al-Youm and the site "Today 24" of the risk of killing that could be inflicted if he traveled to Saudi Arabia or even in Rabat.
The British lawyer confirmed that Bouahrin still keeps Khashoggi's calls on his phone, calling on the UN Special Rapporteur on arbitrary executions Agnes Kalamar to "ask the Moroccan government to see the telephone of the two sources."
