Amnesty International has asked the Premier League to "reconsider its human rights standards" after the Saudi family was allowed to buy Newcastle. A Saudi public investment fund has raised 300 million pounds to acquire the club's shares from the Premiership.
Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman already owns 80% of Newcastle.
Saudi Arabia's heir to the throne, Mohammed bin Salman, has ordered the assassination of Washington Post journalist Jamal Hashoghi, according to a US intelligence report.
The human rights organization Amnesty International said that the deal for Newcastle was an attempt "to clear the Saudi family's image through football."
