Saudi Arabia had informed Turkey that it would pay financial compensation to the family and Turkish fiancee of Saudi journalist, Jamal Khashoggi who was murdered inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul by a Saudi hit-squad on October, 2, Al- Jazeera channel reported a Turkish official as saying.
The Turkish official said the Turkish authorities have evidence on the fate of Khashoggi’s body, but the Saudi authorities are putting obstacles to reach it.
According to the source, when the Saudi prosecutor, Saudi al- Mojaab was asked about the fate of Khashoggi’s body, he said he had no information about the matter.
The source added that the suspects’ statement handed by al- Mojaab to the Turkish authorities were useless and did not help achieve any progress in the investigation.
A Saudi diplomat yesterday confirmed to the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) that the kingdom is investigating the assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, adding that those responsible for his death will be prosecuted. President of the Human Rights Commission of Saudi Arabia Bandar Al Aiban said: “The prosecution initiated the necessary investigations to unveil all the facts, bring all the murderers to justice, and punish those guilty of killing Khashoggi.”
The youngest brother of Saudi Arabia's King Salman has returned from self-imposed exile to "challenge" Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) "or find someone who can," reports the Middle East Eye. Prince Ahmad bin Abdulaziz is reportedly hoping to oust his 33-year-old nephew in the wake of an allegedly state-sanctioned murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. MbS has virtual control over Saudi Arabia after a June 2017 shakeup in which King Salman removed Muhammad bin Nayef as heir apparent.
Hours after the Washington Post published an anonymously sourced story claiming that Saudi Arabia is still refusing to cooperate with Turkish investigators looking into the murder of insider-turned-dissident Jamal Khashoggi, Istanbul's head prosecutor has delivered a statement revealing more incriminating details about the circumstances surrounding the journalist's murder at the hands of a 15-man "hit squad" inside the Kingdom's Istanbul consulate.
A new bombshell report in the Jerusalem Post confirms that Israel and Saudi Arabia's somewhat "quiet" but growing security relationship is far more extensive than previously thought, as it now includes a $250 million weapons deal. This is unprecedented as the two nations still don't even have official diplomatic relations, as the kingdom has yet to officially recognize the state of Israel, but continue a close behind the scenes alliance based on intelligence sharing especially in places like Syria or even Yemen in order to "counter Iran".
Khashoggi BOMBSHELL: Britain 'KNEW of kidnap plot and BEGGED Saudi Arabia to abort plans'
Nearly a week after Saudi Arabia's public prosecutor admitted that journalist Jamal Khashoggi had indeed been murdered inside the kingdom's Istanbul consulate in what he described as a "botched interrogation", the kingdom has apparently changed its story once again. According to AFP, the public prosecutor is now saying that Khashoggi's killing was a premeditated act presumably orchestrated by the 15 members of the Saudi hit squad that met and detained Khashoggi inside the consulate on Oct. 2.
