Turkey working to carry Khashoggi investigation to UN


Khashoggi: The UN’s specialized rapporteur on extrajudicial, analysis or arbitrary executions, Agnes Callamard, is supposed to visit Turkey on January 28 for an international examine into the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Quoting sources, Anadolu Agency noted that Callamard is supposed to visit Turkey from January 28 to February 2.

Khashoggi, a reporter for Washington Post, was murdered on the Saudi consular premises in Istanbul, Turkey on October 2 last year.

Since then, Saudi Arabia, while addressing the gruesome killing, has created trial against 11 suspects, with researchers seeking the death penalty for five of the accused – a trial which has been knocked by the UN Human Rights Council as “insufficient”.

There has too been a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) report which points towards the engagement of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman. The charges against the Crown Prince also called as MBS, have been again and again and vigorously refuted by Saudi Arabia.
