Turkish Investigators to Search Saudi Consulate in Disappearance of Saudi Journalist

Instead of pursuing these angles, the mainstream US media is focussing on the minute details of Khashoggi's disappearance inside a Saudi consulate in Turkey, and giving too much space to unbelievable Saudi denials. He opened his plea by violating journalistic ethics - he revealed that Khashoggi had been the source of an anonymous quote in one of his previous columns.

Khashoggi, a veteran journalist and Washington Post columnist, vanished on 2 October after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to pick up paperwork so he could remarry.

A surveillance image has surfaced, showing Khashoggi entering the consulate October 2.

The surveillance image bore a date and time stamp, as well as a Turkish caption saying that Khashoggi was arriving at the consulate.

Turkish officials have previously said they believe that Khashoggi, a prominent journalist and critic of the Saudi government, was killed inside the consulate.


Crown Prince Mohammed's brother and the Saudi ambassador to the US, Khaled, has insisted all the reports about his disappearance or death "are completely false and baseless". The dissident Saudi journalist's Turkish colleagues and several Turkish officials have voiced concerns that he was murdered in the consulate.

'I also urge Saudi Arabia, especially King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, to show the same level of sensitivity and release CCTV footage from the consulate.

"Although my hope slowly fades away each passing day, I remain confident that Jamal is still alive". Khashoggi condemned that war, arguing that the kingdom was becoming morally indistinguishable from Syrian president Bashar Assad and the Iranians in helping continue the civil wars in Syria and Yemen. Relations were already strained after Turkey sent troops to the Gulf state of Qatar a year ago in a show of support after its Gulf neighbors, including Saudi Arabia, imposed an embargo on Doha. Last year, his police conducted raids and supervised the mass detention and torture of wealthy Saudis in the Ritz-Carlton in Riyadh. As a contributor to the Post, Mr Khashoggi has written extensively and critically about Saudi Arabia.

Hunt said he was seeking urgent answers about the fate of Khashoggi, one of the highest-profile critics of the Saudi leadership.

'There's some pretty bad stories about it. "I do not like it". "Then President Trump can respond", Rogan advised. Erdogan asked. "Don't you have cameras and other things?"


Erdogan was informed of the conclusions Saturday, the Times reported, citing unnamed sources - and he has since dispatched officials to anonymously tell news outlets, including the Times. Such gestures forge stronger economic and strategic ties.

OSMAN ORSAL/REUTERS/NewscomNearly a week after the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi disappeared, suspicions are rising that the regime in Riyadh has silenced him. "In failing to call MBS out on just about anything, particularly repression at home", Miller tweeted, the administration "has emboldened him and given him [the] sense he can do anything".

A Sunni power, Saudi Arabia is also annoyed by Ankara's rapprochement with the kingdom's Shiite archrival, Iran. He also anxious that pushing the Saudis too hard in public could drive them into the waiting arms of Russian Federation, which sets a far lower bar for human rights and press freedom. "Now, nobody will dare to speak and criticize the reforms", Khashoggi said.

Mr Khashoggi had gone to the consulate to collect divorce papers relating to his previous marriage, leaving his fiancee with his Saudi phone on the street outside.

A commentator close to Erdogan's government said so publicly on Tuesday. I anxious about my family. "We Saudis deserve better".
