'He Believed in the Monarchy': Khashoggi Sons Demand Saudis Return Remains

'He Believed in the Monarchy': Khashoggi Sons Demand Saudis Return Remains

Saudi Arabia sent a toxicologist and a chemical expert to its consulate in Istanbul after journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed, a senior Turkish official has told the BBC.

The news emerged after newspaper reports last week claimed Khashoggi's body was disposed of by dissolving it in acid.

Saudi Arabia acknowledged last month that Turkish evidence indicates that the Khashoggi's killing at the consulate was premeditated, shifting its explanation in an apparent effort to ease global outrage over the death.

According to aljazeera.com, the officials said that Maher Mutreb, Salah Tubeigy and Thaar al-Harbi were the three key figures from the 15-member hit squad that were involved in dismembering Khashoggi's body and removing it from the premises.

His brother Salah said "all what we want right now is to bury him in Al Baqi in Medina with the rest of his family", referencing a cemetery in Saudi Arabia.

Initially, Saudi Arabia said Khashoggi walked out of the consulate and that his whereabouts were unknown, then that he died in a fist fight and still later that he had died in a chokehold.

However, as diplomatic pressure grew tremendously on Riyadh to give an account on the mysterious fate of its national, in an unexpected statement last month, Saudi Attorney General Sheikh Saud al-Mojeb admitted that Khashoggi had been killed in a "premeditated" attack in the consulate.

Trump Says "Sanctions Are Coming" for Iran
Pompeo said they are created to "alter the Iranian regime's behavior", especially its support of terrorist groups like Hezbollah. The last time worldwide sanctions were imposed on its oil industry between 2010 and 2016, Iran's exports fell by nearly a half.

Prince Alwaleed was detained a year ago along with dozens of other Saudi businessmen, royals and officials in what officials said was part of a campaign to crack down on corruption.

The joint Turkish and Saudi probe into Khashoggi's fate has made little progress so far.

Sabah said the same individual entered a digital lock code into the system to block access to footage showing movements at the entrance - including the moment Khashoggi arrived at the consulate.

Meanwhile, Khashoggi's sons appealed for his remains to be returned so that he may be buried in Saudi Arabia.

The Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, and officials from his ruling AK party have reiterated their belief in recent days that the "highest levels" of the Saudi establishment must have ordered the journalist's killing, as well as allegations that Saudi Arabia is incapable of carrying out an independent and unbiased criminal investigation.

Numerous Western nations called for the abolition of the death penalty in Saudi Arabia, an end to the system of male guardianship over women and a loosening of the definition of "terrorism" in the kingdom so that peaceful critics are not prosecuted. "Without due orders and permissions, 15 people can not come from Saudi Arabia to kill their own citizen", Cavusoglu said. "Or he had a peaceful death", Abdullah Khashoggi told the USA network during the interview in Washington.
