Uber CEO expresses regret over comments about journalist’s murder


Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi has faced criticism for calling the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi “a mistake” in an interview.

Mr Khosrowshahi later said he regretted his comments.

He tweeted that there is no forgiving or forgetting what happened to Mr Khashoggi and he was wrong to call it a mistake.

US and United Nations officials suspect that Saudi Arabia’s Prince Mohammed bin Salman played a role in Mr Khashoggi’s death, but the Kingdom denies it.

In his interview with Axios on HBO, Mr Khosrowshahi said people make mistakes, and it does not mean they can never be forgiven.

Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund has invested heavily in Uber and its managing director sits on Uber’s board.

Mr Khosrowshahi was brought in as CEO to turn around a company plagued with self-inflicted wounds.
