Saudi Arabia claims Khashoggi murder suspects brought to justice

Interpol issues red notice for Khashoggi killing

After countries around the world, including every European Union member nation, encouraged Saudi Arabia to cooperate with an global investigation into the Washington Post journalist's death, Bandar bin Mohammed al-Aiban responded Thursday, saying his country already took care of everything.

Interpol has issued a red notice for the arrest of 20 suspects believed to be involved in the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, including a top adviser to Saudi Arabia's powerful crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman.

Bandar bin Mohammed Al-Aiban replied simply that the case was "in the courts" in Saudi Arabia when asked by a reporter to respond to calls that the kingdom accept worldwide support in investigating the killing.

He said the kingdom would not accept what he termed as foreign interference in its domestic affairs and judicial system.

"We have taken those measures required for us to resolve this heinous crime", Aiban said, after calling the reporter's death an "unfortunate accident".

The Turkish Justice Ministry said it had requested Interpol red notices for 18 people on November 15 and for two more on December 21 without identifying the individuals.

"Justice in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia operates pursuant to worldwide law and it does so in all transparency", Aiban told the Geneva forum during a review of Saudi Arabia's rights record.

Saudi Arabia initially said it had no knowledge of his fate.

Previously, Saudi officials have said 11 people have been indicted in relation to the Khashoggi murder and that five suspects will face the death penalty.

Aiban also rejected any outside probes into what happened to Khashoggi.

Eleven men are on trial in Saudi Arabia, accused of involvement in the killing.

While Saudi Arabia has abolished the ban on women driving since its previous review, other government-enforced guardian restrictions remain in place, including on travel outside the country.
