It looks like the Saudis have found their fall guy.

Consul

Not long after the UN's top human rights official called for diplomatic immunity to be suspended for those found responsible for the death of Saudi dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Turkish media and Reuters are reporting that Consul General of Saudi Arabia Mohammad al-Otaibi has been recalled to Riyadh, relieved of his duties, and will face an investigation following reports that Khashoggi had been killed in al-Otaibi's office, and that the doctor who dismembered Khashoggi's corpse had asked al-Otaibi to leave the room.

CNN Turk reported Wednesday that an 11-member Saudi investigation team had finally arrived at the Saudi consul's Istanbul residence for a joint inspection with Turkish officials, after the Saudis had declared the residence off limits earlier in the week, per Reuters.

Al-Otaibi reportedly fled Turkey on a commercial flight...

... hours before his residence was expected to be searched by Turkish police.

Jamal Khashoggi, the Saudi journalist, who disappeared in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last week is not quite the critic of the Saudi regime that the Western media says he is.

A Turkish official told AP that police have found evidence inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul which confirms that journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed there. The "high level official" spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity, but said that police had found "certain evidence"that Khashoggi had died in the building. The official did not provide any more details about the evidence uncovered by police.

The Saudis are preparing a report that will acknowledge that Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi's death was the result of an interrogation that went wrong, one that was intended to lead to his abduction from Turkey, according to two sources.
