CNN releases video of alleged Khashoggi body double in Istanbul
22 October 2018
New video released by CNN shows a Saudi operative allegedly disguised as Jamal Khashoggi, leaving the back door of the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on the day of the journalist’s murder, in an attempt to make it look like Khashoggi left the building alive.
Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:
‘Saudi Arabia used look-alike to conceal the death of Khashoggi’
A member of the death squad that killed the Saudi journalist Khashoggi in the consulate in Istanbul left the building that same day in Khashoggi’s clothes. A Turkish official said that to CNN. The news channel has seen surveillance images that confirm the version of the source.
The images show that a man leaves the consulate on the 2nd of October through the back door, apparently in the clothes in which Khashoggi had entered the building more than one and a half hours earlier. He also seems to wear a false beard and glasses.
Later that afternoon the man appears in the same disguise on images of surveillance cameras at the Blue Mosque, in the center of Istanbul. Another half an hour later he changed his clothes, he carried a plastic bag of stuff and his beard had disappeared.
The Turkish official identifies the look-alike as Mustafa al-Madani. He is said to have been a member of the team responsible for the death of the journalist Khashoggi, a critic of the Saudi rulers.
The news about this possible diversionary maneuver feeds the criticism that Saudi Arabia wanted to cover up the case. The country denied having anything to do with Khashoggi’s death for two weeks and initially stated that he had left the premises unharmed.
Last weekend the Saudi government changed their story. According to a new statement, the journalist died after a [‘fist’]fight with people at the consulate. The Minister of Foreign Affairs called Khashoggi’s death a big mistake. Eighteen people have been arrested.
The minister added that crown prince Mohammed Bin Salman knew nothing of the matter, but the Turkish newspaper Yeni Safak questioned that. Around the time Khashoggi was killed, four calls were made from the consulate to [Prince] Mohammed‘s office, the newspaper states.
Saudis reportedly scrap coverup plan because Khashoggi ‘body double’ wore the wrong shoes: here.
