مقتل خاشقجي

In an interview with the Qatari-based media outlet Al Jazeera, Nazif Karaman, head of the investigation department at the Turkish newspaper Daily Sabah, shared some details from an audio tape that allegedly documented the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist, inside the Saudi Consulate General in Istanbul.

“I’m suffocating… Take this bag off my head, I’m claustrophobic” – these were purportedly Khashoggi’s last words, Karaman said.

The senior Turkish journalist alleged that Khashoggi suffocated to death while a plastic bag was over his head, and, according to the recordings, the killing lasted for about seven minutes.

Karaman then claimed that the alleged group of 15 hitmen who, as Turkish officials suggested, travelled to Istanbul one day ahead of the incident to kill the Saudi journalist, spent 15 minutes dismembering his body.

The Daily Sabah journalist’s claims come shortly after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that Ankara had passed the recordings related to the case to Saudi Arabia, the United States, Germany, France and the United Kingdom.

In late October, Istanbul’s prosecutor said in a statement that Khashoggi’s corpse had been dismembered and destroyed after he was strangled to death inside the Saudi consular premises in what appeared to be a premeditated murder.

The Saudi journalist disappeared on 2 October after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to fetch documents he needed in order to remarry. After weeks of concerns that he could have been killed inside the building and searches of the consulate by Turkish police, the Saudi prosecutor-general confirmed his death.

Riyadh had consistently denied the royal family’s involvement in the case, stressing that the crown prince was not aware of the plot and branded Khashoggi’s killing a ”rogue operation.”

Saudi authorities acknowledged that Khashoggi was killed in an altercation with people who met him at the consulate; 18 suspects have already been arrested as part of the ongoing investigation.

Ankara, for its part, is conducting an independent probe into the case, and alleges that Khashoggi was killed by a 15-member hit squad sent from Saudi Arabia.

Imagine if Russia, Hezbollah or Iran did this? Imagine feigned outrage, the shrill hysterics and the calls to bomb, bomb, bomb that would follow?
Pathetic…

I don’t dispute what you wrote here.

My comment speaks for itself, in regards to blatant hypocrisy that should de-legitimatize states like Saudi Arabia, and those in the USA, that condone them.

As long as the EU/US kicks out Russian diplomats because of hearsay laughable Skripal Event in pathetic and bumbling UK.

This is to show to the whole world what sort of people are in charge of any country BUT limited to the “western style democracy”, they not just do these sort of crimes but also impose their will onto other countries via fake humanitarianism, “universal human rights”, “independent press” and also military aggression and illegal sanctions, etc…
