Family Members and 9/11 Survivors to Hold Press Conference to Protest Saudi-funded LIV Golf Series… | National

MIAMI, Oct. 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — A group of 9/11 family members and 9/11 Justice organization survivors will hold a press conference to express their objections to the LIV golf series funded by Saudi Arabia and its tournament will be held at the nearby Trump National Doral Golf Club from October 28-30.

Members of the 9/11 family will present their views and claims, including:

– The Saudi government’s role in supporting the 9/11 terrorist attacks, including recently declassified FBI investigative documents;

– The implications of Saudi efforts to “sportswash” its egregious past;

– The willful complicity of professional golfers who choose to accept Saudi payments and turn a blind eye to the country’s reported human rights violations and its role in the worst terrorist attacks on American soil.

“As another Saudi-funded golf tournament is taking place in America this week, Americans need to understand that this LIV Golf Series, hosted next at Trump Doral, is yet another attempt by the Kingdom to use the game of beloved golf to wash away his heinous behavior and avoid accountability for the murder of my father and thousands of others,” 9/11 Justice’s Brett Eagleson said. “The evidence of the involvement of Saudi government officials in the 9/11 attacks on America could not be clearer, and this event could not be more insulting. That is why we speak out and will continue to do so as the Saudis fund LIV Golf events in America.”
