Unic Press UK: Turkish prosecutors are seeking life sentences for 18 of the 20 people accused of killing a Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul in 2 October 2018. The other two are facing a charge for “incitement to first degree murder”.
Apart from the Chief Prosecutor’s Office, Istanbul, indicting all the 20 in this murder case, the Senate of the United States unanimously passed a resolution on 13 December 2018 https://www.foreign.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/SJ%20Res%20Supporting%20a%20Diplomatic%20Solution%20in%20Yemen%20and%20Condemning%20the%20Murder%20of%20Jamal%20Khashoggi.pdf declaring that the Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman is responsible for the murder of a Saudi-born journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was brutally killed at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, the Republic of Turkey. Excerpts from the U.S. Senate Resolution reads: “Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, that the Senate believes Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is responsible for the murder of Jamal Khashoggi”
The United Nations also hold the Saudi authorities responsible for gruesome murder of Khashoggi, when, in June 2019, it indicted top officials of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, including the Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, saying Mr. Khashoggi was the victim of a “brutal and premeditated killing”, said in the final report that “the evidence suggests that the murder was premeditated and that the direction from superiors was to kill Mr. Khashoggi, at the very least if he would not agree to return,” the UN News Centre reports.
