Saudi Prince Alwaleed: Khashoggi probe will exonerate leader

Saudi Prince Alwaleed: Khashoggi probe will exonerate leader

The so-called Universal Periodic Review - which all 193 United Nations countries must undergo approximately every four years - came as a Turkish official charged Monday that Saudi Arabia had sent experts to Turkey to cover up the journalist's murder before allowing Turkish police in to search the consulate.

Turkey believes Khashoggi's body was dismembered, while other reports suggest it was dissolved in acid.

After first insisting Khashoggi left the consulate unharmed, Saudi authorities said he was killed in an argument that degenerated into a brawl before finally accepting what Turkey had said virtually from the start - that he was killed in a premeditated hit.

On Saturday, the paper said Khashoggi's body - which still hasn't been found - was dismembered and removed from the Saudi Consulate in five suitcases.

"All what we want right now is to bury him in Al-Baqi (cemetery) in Medina (Saudi Arabia) with the rest of his family", Salah Khashoggi, 35, told CNN in an interview that aired Sunday.

Saudi officials said the team was acting on its own and not at the direction of the royal ruling family. The country's prosecutor stated that the journalist was killed by "strangulation" and that his body was "cut into pieces" after the murder.

In Qassim, the king ordered the release of "insolvent prisoners" with debts of up to one million riyals (RM1.1 million) and will launch more than 600 development projects worth 16 billion riyals on Wednesday, the official Saudi Press Agency said.

"We condemn the disgusting murder of Jamal Khashoggi", Trudeau told the House of Commons, adding "we are deeply concerned about reports on the participation of Saudi forces".

Prince Alwaleed was detained past year along with dozens of other Saudi businessmen, royals and officials in what officials said was part of a campaign to crack down on corruption.

Khasoggi's sons also issued an appeal for the return of their father's body.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has repeatedly demanded more information from Saudi Arabia, has also asked Saudi officials to say who in Riyadh sent a 15-strong team which is suspected of involvement in the killing.

"I very much hope that what happened to him wasn't painful, or that he had a quick death without suffering", said 33-year-old Abdullah. On Monday, a Turkish official said that at least two members of a team that Saudi Arabia sent to investigate Khashoggi's killing were actually there to cover it up.

"As regards the passing of citizen Khashoggi, our country is committed to carrying out a fair investigation and all persons involved with that crime will be prosecuted in the justice system", Aiban said at the end of the half-day session.

"A thorough, conclusive and transparent investigation carried out in accordance with due process with results made public is essential".
