Murder of Khashoggi ‘premeditated’, says Saudi prosecutor

Murder of Khashoggi ‘premeditated’, says Saudi prosecutor

The Saudis fired five officials linked to the killing and have arrested 18 suspects.

But, as worldwide pressure mounted, the kingdom said on Saturday that The Washington Post contributor and critic of the Saudi government died inside the mission when an argument degenerated into a fistfight.

Turkish officials especially are pushing the Saudi government to identify who ordered the killing.

The Public Prosecution will question the suspects based on the information it received.

"Who gave them the orders?" he asked. Vince responded by saying they were not going to talk a lot about that today. "The family wants to know and they want to perform their last duty", Cavusoglu said, referring to hopes for the writer's burial.

It's unclear when the president will make a final determination on the Khashoggi case.

CIA Director Gina Haspel will brief President Trump Thursday on what she has learned about the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed Thursday morning.

The announcement underscored the rapidly mounting pressures on Saudi Arabia to fully illuminate Khashoggi's killing, after its previous explanations were contradicted by Turkey and met with skepticism by the United States, a close Saudi ally. Turkey is conducting a separate investigation into the journalist's death. "The cover-up was disgusting. But there should have never been an execution or a cover-up because it should have never happened".

The young crown prince has denied having knowledge of the alleged assassination mission and on Wednesday promised to bring those responsible to justice.

Saudi Arabia claims that Jamal Khashoggi died in a physical altercation inside its consulate in Istanbul. I believe it is painful for every human in the world, ' he added.

The journalist's death prompted several major companies and business leaders to distance themselves from Saudi Arabia ahead of the Future Investment Initiative, a high-profile financial conference known as "Davos in the Desert".

Turkish media have also published a security camera image allegedly showing a vehicle belonging to the Saudi Consulate "scouting" a forest in the outskirts of Istanbul before Khashoggi was killed.

Previously, the U.S. had denied that Secretary of State Pompeo had heard or been given a copy of the alleged recording during a visit to the region, which included both Saudi Arabia and Turkey. We will continue to explore additional measures to hold those accountable.

"Because we are talking about a crime against a journalist, that violence against journalists has been highlighted as a key priority for the United Nations and for a number of state members", she also noted.

The European Parliament passed a nonbinding resolution Thursday urging an EU-wide arms embargo on Saudi Arabia in response.

Khashoggi's death was described as "murder" for the first time by Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir on Sunday.

It's unclear whether US intelligence agrees.

Khashoggi was a U.S. resident and had lived in self-imposed exile in Virginia since 2017, shortly after the powerful Prince Mohammed was appointed heir to the throne.

During the vigil, a friend of Khashoggi and advisor to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Yasin Aktay, said that "no one can sweep this affair under the rug".

Speaking in Ankara, Erdogan said Turkey will "not allow the murder to be covered up" and will be transparent in sharing any evidence it uncovers.
