Five Saudi Citizens Are Accused Of Killing, Dismembering Jama Khashoggi

AFP 2018 / OZAN KOSE

On November 15, Saudi Arabia’s Attorney General Saud al-Mojeb demanded the death penalty for five defendants accused in the case of journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s murder.

Khashoggi went missing on October 2 after he had entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul. Riyadh initially denied any responsibility for the crime. But later, Saudi authorities arrested 21 Saudis as part of an investigation into the murder.

“The Prosecutor General’s Office demanded to execute those who ordered and committed the murder — there are five of them,” the Saudi official news agency SPA quoted the prosecutor’s statement.

According to the Attorney General, General Ahmed al-Assiri, the former Saudi deputy intelligence chief fired in October, was the highest-level figure behind the murder. Al-Assiri allegedly ordered a “negotiating team” to return Khashoggi to Saudi Arabia, while the head of the team had given the order to kill the journalist in case the operation to convince Khashoggi to return failed.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu commented on al-Mojeb’s statement saying that the statement was “insufficient”. Herepeated that the previous claims that the murder was “premeditated”.

“We find the statement of Saudi Arabia about the murder of Khashoggi positive but not sufficient. The Saudi side will share the details of its investigation with our prosecutor’s office. But we already know that the murder was planned in advance and that the journalist was first killed and the body was later dismembered,” Cavusoglu said on TRT TV. “And how they would be killing and then disposing of the body was also planned, special devices were brought to the consulate general.”

    hahahaha stooges getting chopped to pieces…..and that will be the end of this story……so the whole world watched as a saudi assassination squad killed and dismembered a man in their embassy in turkey…the whole world watched the pathetic lies from day 1 of “he left the embassy” to what we now have their final and western APPROVED version of a “rougue operation”.
    hahaha and folks still cast their vote lol

    The article mentions nothing about the audio tapes that Turkey distributed to other world leaders like party favors. Even Trudeau the ballerina got one.

      Audio proves nothing at all.It is a red herring.
      Audio VISUAL is far closer to being conclusive,which is why
      it is audio alone.

      • Snowglobe

        Agreed.

        These days with current technology even video is suspect. I always wonder when propaganda gets spewed at us one day, then has the lifespan of 48 hrs. before the news cycle changes.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Motown will soon be distributing the headchopping savagery on Hollywood CD’s paid for by Harvey Weinstein :)

    The Saudi and Israeli fake states crimes by crimes. One is notorious bone saw regime and the other one the childbutcher regime. One is busy in taking land from the children of Yemen and the other one is busy in taking land from the children of Palestine. And interestingly both are supported by Washington the head of all world butchers.

    Mohamed bin-Salman’s post-Khashoggi crisis management plan – quickly ‘judicially’ execute very own KSA state security executioners as scapegoats. Now, that will surely secure future loyalty from the KSA state security forces…you really couldn’t make this stuff up.

    • Brother Ma

      Remains to be seen of these five are actually put to death.

    NoO Wahhabistan you gotta Behead at least 22 of these perpetrators.. Mohammed Ben Shlomo included….He gave the Orders…. No One would have done any chopping up Khashoggi without the Clown Prince giving his ORDER…..

  • ANTINANCO

    These faithful servants of the prince should be tried outside Saudi Arabia, so they will be killed like the Egyptians murdered by Al Sissi, to find guilty by chance of the death of Regeni.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    The chief headchopper is the ugly slob MBS who needs to be waterboarded and deported to his Zionist masters. The Saudis are pathetic savage idiots who have been caught out in the most disgustingly bizarre headchopping and Pulp Fiction style dismemberment at one of their embassies are are scrambling to fight scapegoats. The Yemen genocide perpetrator Assiri has already disappeared and some of these minions will lose their heads, but the desperate criminal Saudi regimes behavior will not change. Trump and the tranny Kushner both got millions from al-Waleed’s Citigroup.
