11 Oct 6:22pm Sir Richard Branson suspends Saudi business talks over Khashoggi affair
The Guardian
The Virgin boss was due to discuss government investment in space tourism but other western business figures remain silent on journalist’s disappearance Sir Richard Branson has suspended talks with the Saudi government over investment in his space tourism venture Virgin Galactic and has put on hold directorship of two massive tourism projects planned by Saudi Arabia along the Red Sea amid the deepening crisis over the disappearance and alleged murder of the dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi. In a statement to the Guardian, Branson said that he had had “high hopes for the current government in the kingdom and its leader Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman”. But reports of the regime’s involvement in the disappearance of the Washington Post columnist “if proved true, would clearly change the ability of any of us in the West to do business with the Saudi government”.
