The United Nations human rights agency has called for international experts to be involved in an independent investigation into the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, with access to evidence and witnesses.
Reports that the body of slain Saudi journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, was dissolved in acid need to be investigated, Turkey’s Vice President, Fuat Oktay, said on Monday.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, in an op-ed piece in the Washington Post, said he did not believe “for a second” that King Salman had ordered “the hit” on Jamal Khashoggi and he also refrained from directly accusing the crown prince.
The body of journalist and Saudi critic Jamal Khashoggi was “dissolved” after he was murdered and dismembered in Saudi Arabia’s consulate in Istanbul a month ago, according to a Turkish official.
Jamal Khashoggi’s fiancee, Hatice Cengiz, told an audience on a visit to London she was disappointed with Donald Trump’s approach.
