Khashoggi murder: Saudi Arabia 'sent experts' to cover evidence

Trump seen with Crown Prince Mohammed in the White House in March has touted billions of dollars’ worth of arms deals with Saudis

"We believe that the two individuals came to Turkey for the sole goal of covering up evidence of Jamal Khashoggi's murder before the Turkish police were allowed to search the premises", the official said on condition of anonymity.

Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist known for his criticism of Saudi policies, was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

Saudi Arabia deployed a chemist and toxicology expert to Istanbul after the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in an attempt to cover up evidence of the killing, a Turkish newspaper reported on Monday.

Prince Khalid's release comes as the kingdom faces worldwide outrage over the killing of Khashoggi inside its consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

The driver, 21-year-old Coleten Treu, later surrendered to authorities after police launched a search for the vehicle. They were all wearing bright lime-green safety vests and were accompanied by several adults at the time.


In an opinion piece published by the USA newspaper The Washington Post on Friday, Erdogan called on Saudi Arabia to answer outstanding questions concerning the 59-year-old's killing last month.

On Saturday, Sabah newspaper, which is close to the Turkish government, said Khashoggi's body - which still hasn't been found - was dismembered and removed from the Saudi Consulate in five suitcases. A Turkish official said last week that his body may have been dissolved in acid.

Saudi Arabia claims that Mr Khashoggi's death was a "rogue" operation and was not authorised by Crown Prince Mohammed or other senior Saudi figures.

"The Saudi government's long-standing repression of critics, exemplified by the extrajudicial execution of journalist Jamal Khashoggi last month, has until recently been willfully ignored by United Nations member states", she added. "What took place in that Saudi consulate was clearly horrific, despicable and tragic, and I believe that Saudi Arabia is going to get to the bottom of it, but please, you have to give us some time until the investigation is done and made public by the government of Saudi Arabia".

"King [Salman bin] Abdulaziz has already instructed the prosecution to proceed with the investigation into this case according to the applicable laws and preparation to reaching all facts and bringing all the perpetrators to justice in order to bare the facts to the public".

Turkey is seeking the extradition of 18 suspects who have been detained in Saudi Arabia, so they can be put on trial in Turkey.

Saudi officials reportedly considered him part of the Muslim Brotherhood, an Egyptian political organization that some countries consider a terror group.

Analysts say Saudi authorities appear to be trying to defuse the crisis by shoring up support from within the royal family.
