Jamal Khashoggi: Saudi Arabia lets Turkey search consulate

Posted October 10, 2018

Turkish security officials were working to identify the 15 individuals, English-language state broadcaster TRT World reported, adding that Turkish officials believe the Saudis may have taken the consulate's CCTV footage with them when they returned to Saudi Arabia.

"We call on the government of Saudi Arabia to support a thorough investigation of Mr. Khashoggi's disappearance and to be transparent about the results of that investigation", he said.

The timestamped picture has a Turkish caption bearing Mr Khashoggi's name and that he was arriving at the consulate, but the man in shot has his back to the camera.

A statement on Sunday by the state-run Saudi Press Agency (SPA) cited a diplomatic officer who categorically denied "these baseless allegations, and expressed his doubt that they came from Turkish officials that are informed of the investigation or are authorised to comment on the issue".

According to his fiancee Cengiz, Khashoggi had visited the consulate to receive an official document for his marriage.

"What was explained to us is this: He was killed, make your funeral preparations", Kislakci said. "We hear the rumors about what happened", Saudi Crown Prince and de facto ruler Mohammed Bin Salman, known in the West as MBS, told Bloomberg News in an extensive interview. His foreign policy moves have been extremely aggressive, including his military support of the government in Yemen against Iranian-backed Houthi rebels and nearly going to war with Qatar due to their support of the Iranian regime. "I don't like hearing about it", Trump told reporters at the White House on Monday.

Khashoggi, a former Saudi government adviser, had been living in self-imposed exile in the United States since a year ago fearing possible arrest.

The country has demanded Saudi Arabia prove he left, while not providing evidence to support the claim he was killed inside.

Journalists and activists gathered outside the Saudi consulate on Monday demanding information on Khashoggi's fate.

Turkish authorities are set to search the site after announcing that Saudi Arabia had declared itself "open to co-operation" in the investigation, but no date has been announced for the search. This group is considered to have a connection with the disappearance of Khashoggi. "We called a few other places, these are lower officials, but they said: 'We have evidence he was killed in a barbaric way, we will announce it tomorrow or the day after"'.

'There's some pretty bad stories about it. CNN reports that 15 Saudi nationals visited the consulate the same day as Khashoggi and have since left the country.

He had been living since past year in the United States, in a self-imposed exile, in part due to the rise of Prince Mohammed, the son of King Salman. Erdogan asked. "Don't you have cameras and other things?" Then why do you not prove this?

According to Amnesty International, Saudi Arabia's public prosecutor is seeking the death penalty against her and her husband, and three other rights activists.

President Donald Trump, who took his first overseas trip as USA president to the kingdom and whose son-in-law Jared Kushner has close ties to Prince Mohammed, said he had concerns.

"If media reports from the weekend regarding Mr Khashoggi's case prove correct, that would be extremely concerning and the UK will treat the incident very seriously - friendships depend on shared values", a spokesperson for the UK Foreign Office said.
