Turkey Claims Saudis Killed, Chopped Up Journalist — NY Times

Turkey demands convincing explanation on 'missing' Saudi journalist Canada concerned over reports Saudi journalist killed - The Jakarta Post

Khashoggi, who has lived in self-imposed exile in Washington for the past year fearing retribution for his criticism of Saudi policies, entered the consulate on Tuesday to secure documents for his forthcoming marriage, according to his fiancee, who waited outside.

The Saudi writer spent previous year in the U.S.in self-imposed exile, after he fled the kingdom amid a crackdown on intellectuals and activists who criticized the policies of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Turkish police were limited to footage from two street cameras that monitor the street outside the consulate after Saudi officials claimed that security cameras inside the consulate were not working at the time of last week's incident.

Turkish officials say the Washington Post contributor was killed at the consulate and that his body was later removed from the building, without providing evidence.

What are Turkey and Saudi Arabia saying?

Bob Corker, who as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee has reviewed USA intelligence on the case, said it was likely that Khashoggi was killed the day he walked into the consulate.

They allege he was tortured, killed and cut into pieces.

Turkish news agency Anadolu also reported that the Turkish authorities were investigating the role played by the 15-member special team of Saudi Arabian citizens into Khashoggi's disappearance. Riyadh has supported the administration's tough stance toward Iran, a key rival of Saudi Arabia in the volatile Middle East.

CNN has not been able to independently confirm these reports, and the Saudi government has denied them.

"The consulate building will be searched in the framework of the investigation", Aksoy said in a written statement. He has not been seen since entering the building on 2 October.

The image released by the Post bore a date and date stamp.

The van, which had diplomatic number plates, left in a convoy around two hours after Khashoggi entered.

Turkish officials made the accusation on Sunday.

"It is like Pulp Fiction", the senior USA official was quoted as saying, referring to the graphically violent 1994 Hollywood movie by director Quentin Tarantino. If there was evidence of a crime there, it will have been cleaned up days ago.

Why is global law a factor?

Cengiz, 36, said she called the consulate to say she was waiting at the entrance and asked: "Where is Jamal?".

Ben Saul, Professor of International Law at the University of Sydney, says that a host state can not interfere with consulate communications, and crates are deemed to be "diplomatic bags". "We have a country that's doing probably better economically than it's ever done before". The Post, which first published the photo, said "a person close to the investigation" shared the image with them, without elaborating. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) said in a string of tweets Monday that "if there is any truth to the allegations of wrongdoing by the Saudi government it would be devastating to the US-Saudi relationship and there will be a heavy price to be paid - economically and otherwise".

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday said he was awaiting the results of an investigation into the disappearance of a Saudi journalist who a government source said was killed at Riyadh's consulate in Istanbul. Erdogan said of the consular officials at a news conference in the Hungarian capital, Budapest.

"Do you not have cameras and everything of the sort?" "Why don't you prove it, you have to prove it".

Worldwide pressure is also ramping up on Saudi Arabia to cooperate with the probe.

In an essay in the Washington Post, Khashoggi's fiancée, Hatice Cengiz, implored US President Donald Trump and first lady Melania to "help shed light on Jamal's disappearance".

The two countries have such an obligation under both criminal law and worldwide human rights law, she said.

On Saturday Saudi Arabia's consul-general in Istanbul, Mohammad al Otaibi, opened up his mission to Reuters to show that Khashoggi was not on the premises, and said talk of his abduction was groundless.

"That's a pretty drastic step, but this is also a pretty drastic case".
