The Director of Communications of the Presidency of Turkey, Fahrettin Altun, declared through his Twitter account that his country is still in its efforts to clarify the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Khashoggi, who was a Saudi journalist and a contributor to The Washington Post, entered his country’s consulate in Istanbul on October 2, 2018 and never left again.
“By combining all our means,” said Fahrettin Altun, “we prevent this organized and premeditated murder from covering up. But the attitude of the authorized Saudis that overshadows the transparency of the prosecution process and the lack of sufficient efforts for the fulfillment of justice hurt everyone’s conscience. ”
Turkey will monitor the case of Jamal Khashoggi said the Director of Communications of the Presidency and added: “We reiterate our call to international society to adopt a common position in the face of this murder committed.”
The special rapporteur on extrajudicial executions, Agnes Callamard, pointed in June directly to Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman responsible for the crime.
Meanwhile, MBS – acronym with which the future Saudi king is named – repeats how much interviewer he crosses these days, a phrase that has already become the plot line about his performance: “It is my responsibility because I was in charge, but I did not know anything”.
“The Khashoggi case is not closed, it is suspended in exchange for a bulky economic bill while the White House and its current tenant continue to consider that there is an economic benefit to extract while keeping the case in suspense,” said Haizam Amirah-Fernández of the Elcano Royal Institute.
