Saudi Prosecutor Visits Istanbul Consulate Where Khashoggi Was Killed

Why did Khashoggi murder get 24/7 coverage by corporate media? He was part of DC elite! – Lee Camp

His October 2 disappearance at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul created an global firestorm of controversy threatening the already complicated relations between Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the U.S.

The killing was premeditated, according to the office of Irfan Fidan, Istanbul's chief prosecutor, who added that discussions with Saudi prosecutors led to no "concrete results".

Turkey has given its first official statement on how writer Jamal Khashoggi was killed, saying he was immediately strangled, then dismembered.

Tuesday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan urged Riyadh to reveal who ordered Khashoggi killed.

Saudi officials say they do not know the whereabouts of his body, but that it was dumped with the help of a local collaborator.

The prosecutor's statement that Khashoggi was killed immediately conflicted with a report by pro-government newspaper Yeni Safak last month, which cited what it described as an audio recording of Khashoggi being tortured before being killed.

Later on Wednesday, the spokesman for Turkey's ruling AK Party, Omer Celik, said Khashoggi's killing could not have been carried out without orders from senior positions, in one of Ankara's strongest accusations directed at Riyadh yet.

The fiancée of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi has said Saudi authorities are responsible for his slaying, and the kingdom should give more details so that those responsible can be brought to justice.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was pictured shaking the hands of the murdered journalist's son Salah bin Jamal Khashoggi in the days following his death.

The case has put into focus the West's close relationship with Saudi Arabia - a major arms buyer and lynchpin of Washington's regional plans to contain Iran - given the widespread scepticism over its initial response.

"On October 29, Saudi Arabia's chief prosecutor arrives in Istanbul for talks with his Turkish counterparts".

Khashoggi was a Saudi journalist who went into self-imposed exile in the United States previous year after falling out with the kingdom's powerful Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.

In wake of the murder, Germany suspended export licenses to Saudi, while US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo invalidated visas of Saudi officials who are believed to be part of the plot to murder the journalist. It recently acknowledged that Turkish evidence shows the killing was premeditated. Turkey has yet to provide evidence.
