Turkey: Khashoggi strangled to death, then dismembered

Turkey: Khashoggi strangled to death, then dismembered Turkey: Khashoggi strangled to death, then dismembered

The statement follows weeks of media reports about the murder at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October.

On Monday, Al-Muajab had an extensive meeting with Turkey's Chief Public Prosecutor Irfan Fidan at the Istanbul Caglayan courthouse.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday demanded that Saudi Arabia reveal the location of Khashoggi's body and hand over 18 suspects.

His body was then dismembered and destroyed - "again, in line with advance plans", it added.

Saudi officials say they do not know the whereabouts of his body, but that it was dumped with the help of a local collaborator.

Trump has called Khashoggi's disappearance and death "one of the worst cover-ups in the history of cover-ups", but has also said the USA should not be too critical of the regime because of a pending multi-billion dollar arms deal with Riyadh.

"This incident, this assassination, took place in the Saudi consulate", she said, speaking through a translator.

On 25 October, Saudi Arabia's public prosector says the murder was "premeditated", based on information supplied by Turkey.

He also claimed that Mojeb was in pursuit of Khashoggi's phone, which the journalist handed to his Turkish fiancee before entering the consulate.

Following the global outrage over the macabre circumstances on Jamal Khashoggi's case, the Saudi public prosecutor reversed its statement and declared that the killing was premeditated.

The Saudi prosecutor arrived in Istanbul on Sunday.

The Saudi side has reportedly invited the Istanbul chief prosecutor to Saudi Arabia along with the evidence collected during the investigation. His Turkish fiancee was waiting for him outside.

Khashoggi, who had become a frequent critic of the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, was in the consulate to obtain papers for his planned marriage.

But the top US diplomat nonetheless stressed that he wanted to preserve the decades-old alliance with Saudi Arabia and declined explicitly to criticise Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman [MbS], who has been consolidating power.

Under mounting global pressure, Saudi Arabia has changed its narrative about Khashoggi's death several times. Saudi Arabia only recently acknowledged Turkish evidence showed the slaying was premeditated.
