4H Ghana, a youth leadership promotion group has called on the international community to bring to book all those behind the killing of Jamal Khashogghi, an international journalist in the Saudi Arabia Embassy in Turkey.

In a press release signed by the Executive Director of 4H Ghana, Mr Appiah Kweku Boateng to mark the first anniversary of the killing of the journalist, the group maintained that the international community could bring the perpetuators to book and at the same time maintain good diplomatic relationship with Saudi Arabia.

The release said the report of the United Nation (UN) Special Rapporteur, Agnes Calamande, indicted that the Saudi Prince Mohammed Bin Salman was the one who masterminded the killing of Khashogghi. Yet one year down the line the international community had failed to bring those behind the killing to book.

The release observed that some former heads of states like Charles Tailor of Liberia and Laurent Gbagboo of La Cote D’Ivoir were extradited to face justice for their activities that led to death of their citizens while serving as heads of state.

The release said the former President of Sudan, Oman Bashir was indicted by the International Criminal Court when he was still the President of Sudan and that limited his travels across the world.

4H Ghana therefore called on forward looking people in the world and the world press to continue to press for justice for the family of Jamal Khashogghi.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
