A cause
Human Rights Watch called on Argentina to use an article in its war crimes constitution to investigate the role of the Saudi hereditary prince in possible crimes against humanity in Yemen and the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi .

"Before going to Argentina to clean up your image to the heads of state at the G-20 summit, I know the judiciary could investigate your potential crimes," said the Saudi hereditary prince in a brief statement.

Attorney General Ramiro Gonzalez asked federal judge Ariel Lejo to obtain information from Yemen, Saudi Arabia and Turkey regarding the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the Yemen war and other documents before deciding if the Argentine judiciary could investigate and prosecute the Crown Prince.

The newspaper concluded that the request for information on the files in question means practically delaying any possible legal action against Mohammed bin Salman.

The meetings of the heads of state and government of the G-20 countries will be held on Friday and Saturday at the convention center on the banks of the Rio de la Plata river, which separates Argentina from Uruguay and separates the city from the rest of the city from highway, railway and police barriers.
