Saudi Arabia again says no to worldwide probe into Khashoggi murder

Saudi Arabia again says no to worldwide probe into Khashoggi murder

The UN has repeatedly called on Saudi Arabia to cooperate with an UN-led investigation into Khashoggi's murder, but the kingdom has refused, calling it an internal matter.

Addressing the United Nations Human Rights Council, Dr.al-Aiban said "we are horrified at Khashoggi killing" and that it was a "heinous crime" and an "unfortunate accident".

Turkey on Thursday said Interpol had issued red notices for 20 people in connection with the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Khashoggi, who worked as a contributor for The Washington Post, was an outspoken critic of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

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

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

Citing the Turkish Justice Ministry, Daily Sabah said the red notice was originally issued on 1 March as part of an investigation by the Istanbul Chief Public Prosecutor's Office into Khashoggi's murder.

US House unanimously demands Mueller report be made public
The vote was overwhelmingly bipartisan, with 420 members voting in favor of the resolution and zero voting against it. Schumer added that he was "deeply disappointed" in Graham, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee.

But that explanation has been roundly rejected outside of the kingdom, as pressure mounts for Mohammad bin Salman, whom many believe had to have signed off on Khashoggi's killing, to be held to account.

"Saudi Arabia is a sovereign country".

Regarding Yemen's crisis, he said the Arab Coalition is committed to worldwide human rights law.

After making numerous contradictory statements, it said Khashoggi was killed after negotiations to persuade him to return to Saudi Arabia failed - and later that 11 Saudis had been indicted and referred for trial over the case, without identifying them.

The Saudi government has denied any involvement by the crown prince.

Although a country rich with exceptional natural, cultural, and heritage sites, Saudi Arabia is only now developing its tourism sector beyond its current structure, which has been created to cater all-year-round to religious pilgrims.
