Review of facts around Khashoggi murder | Al Jazeera English

Despite the differing narratives about what happened to Jamal Khashoggi on October 2, some facts are indisputable, pieced together using security footage and Turkish intelligence.

Turkish sources say the leader of what they call the Saudi “hit team” was Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman‘s bodyguard Maher Abdulaziz Mutreb.

Al Jazeera’s Andrew Simmons looks back at Jamal Khashoggi’s last day.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Turks not allowed to investigate surfaced Saudi car

The Saudi consulate in Istanbul has forbidden Turkish detectives to search a parked car owned by the consulate. The car, with a diplomatic license plate, was found earlier today in an underground car park, 15 kilometers away from the consulate where the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed on October 2nd.

The Turkish police and the Public Prosecutor’s Office investigate exactly what happened at the consulate. According to the Saudis, the critical journalist was killed in the diplomatic post during a [fist]fight. That statement, more than two weeks after the disappearance of the journalist, has been received with great skepticism. It is generally assumed that the 59-year-old Khashoggi was murdered at the consulate by a death squad.

Permission required

For the investigation of the Saudi car, permission is required from the consulate and from the office of the Turkish prosecutor. CNN Turk reports that the car will be inspected tomorrow, without reporting any details. The police have closed the parking garage for the public.

A television channel … has today shown images of a security camera showing three men who, according to the television channel burn documents in the backyard of the consulate, one day after the disappearance of Khashoggi.
