Erdogan: Turkey Gave Khashoggi Death Recordings To Saudi Arabia, US, UK, France, Germany

Turkey has given recordings on the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi embassy in Istanbul to Saudi Arabia, the US, Germany, France and the UK, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on November 10.

Speaking before his departure for France to attend commemorations to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One, Erdogan stated that the killer of Jamal Khashoggi is among a group of 15 Saudi citizens who arrived in Turkey one day ahead of the October 2 murder.

Previously, Ankara claimed to have had audio of the murder ever since the journalist went missing on October 2, after going inside the Saudi consulate, never to be seen again.

Initially, Saudi Arabia denied that Khashoggi was killed inside the building, insisting that he left it. Later, Riyadh changed its story to say the journalist was accidentally killed in a fist fight with consultate workers. Latr, the Saudi story was changed again. Now, Riyadh insists that the killing was carried out in a rogue operation unbeknownst to the leadership.

In turn, Erdogan has stated that that Khashoggi had been killed on order from the “highest levels” of the Saudi government.

While it remains obvious that Saudi Arabia is responsible for the death of the journalist, who had been in opposition to the modern Saudi government, main “Saudi partners” – the US, the UK – as well as other EU states have taken no steps that can practically punish Saudi Arabia for its behaviour. In fact, they have mostly ingored the story. Some of them, first of all Washington, have even attempted to defend Riyadh’s versions of the events.

    MBS the ripper sees to slaughter the journalists of his kingdom without his knowledge, last the journalist and Saudi writer Turki Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Jasser tortured and killed in prison. On the other hand, the Zionchristian american evangelists, brothers of Netanyahu, go to visit him every day and hope that this idiot poor man who does not know where he lives, will soon become king.

    Bull. There are very few stories in history that have so *not* been ignored. Germany at least has put a weapons embargo into place almost immediately. What has Russia done? (Hint: nothing).

    Perhaps there is a recording of a murder.

    How will they know that it is of “the” murder. The body of Jamal Khashoggi has not been found so all they have is illegal recordings that it is claimed were taken from the SA consulate. Sounds a little more like a Hollywood production than an international investigation.

    Yeah, the total puke factore in this sherade is baffling, and then we have the western eh…. media aka the MSM whing about how bad the Clown Prince is/was because of this Kashuggi Muder, and again even more peculiar is the fact so far, that all this people, medias, politicians widpissing as allways, etc, etc, dont mention another Saudi that was indeed wacked by the same regime, this time, an genuine man, not an, f…. knows and frankly dont care, they are eating their own and one down is an good thing from the pack of scums hanging around the cort yards in the Saudi-barbarians pallaces.

    Fasinating isnt it, hypocrasy is a word I use often, but the shere level lately have made it meaningless, its so gross its become bizzare.
    Turn on the TV and watch, watch them talk, mindless irrelevancys is pimped hard while facts is been onscured, the war hammering is constant, and when it comes to Yemen, its even worse, they simply dont care, the UN is an bad joke, the EU dont give an f…., because as Norway (not EU) makes an killing an arms sales, yeah, and whines about Crimea, and on top of it, blames Iran for it all.
    Their words makes one from time to time just numb, wtf is wrong with the wankees, but that is also to the europeans, the core HumaNazis, dead silent.
    Palestina, dead silent, except the HasbaRatnjiks running loose this days where everybody else is an Putin troll.

    I feel sorry for the Saudis, the people, whom have missed it all, an tribe running of with everything, incl political power and police.
    An banana republic wurthy.
