The latest on Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s murderers to be executed
The Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who had last been spotted at the Saudi consular office in Istanbul on October 2, disappeared almost right after. This led to eleven people being arrested.
Al- Arabiya reported that five perpetrators who conspired against Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi and were directly involved in his murder. Have been trying for and the prosecuting counsel demands a death penalty for them. The criminals had hatched the plot on September 29, according to a press conference in Riyadh held by Saudi Al-Mojeb. Al-Arabiya further mentioned that before the killing, the consulate’s security cameras had been deactivated.
Turkey is required to assist Saudia in the inspection by providing every possible proof. Also, the former deputy intelligence chief had devised a team to take back the journalist’s dead body, said the prosecution speaker. He added that the late Saudi advisor was also part of the conspiracy. As per the report, the indicted had, at first, refused to admit that he was associated with the murder. After the corpse was mutilated it was given to a local ally.
Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi had supposedly close connections with the Saudi royal family. But was an antagonist of the ongoing government and the 33 years old, Crown Prince. The journalist Jamal Khashoggi had been residing in the U.S for the past year. Where he wrote considerably about Saudia and its policies, clearly opposing them. For instance, the Yemen war, the political issue with Canada and detaining a women’s rights activist.
The prince is not involved in the case. He had a meeting with the US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, who announced on November 1 that the criminals must be penalized.
The Khashoggi was reportedly killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2.
