Interpol issues Red Notice for Saudi suspects upon Turkey's request

Saudi Human Rights official: Brought perpetrators of Khashoggi murder to justice ‘Unfortunate accident’: Saudis assure UN there’s no need for probe into Khashoggi killing

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

Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2, provoking an global outcry.

The head of a Saudi delegation speaking before the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva insisted that his country was taking all the "measures required for us to resolve this heinous crime".

"We urge Saudi Arabia to tell the world which individuals are now on trial on what charge (s)", Altun said, to lay to rest any doubts that may arise about the "sincerity" of the judicial proceedings in the kingdom.

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

However, it was important for MPs to be able to go about their daily lives without security guards watching over them, they said. She said she was "with Jacinda last night" and she had asked the prime minister what she would say to the people of Nelson.

The notice was issued on March 1 as part of Turkey's request over the investigation launched into the murder by the Istanbul Chief Public Prosecutor's Office.

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. " While not naming any names, he said that 11 Saudi citizens had been indicted for the "heinous crime" a year ago".

"We find it hard to understand why an official working in the area of human rights would possibly be unsettled by efforts to shed light on all aspects of the Khashoggi murder, which received a global response", Altun said in a statement.

The Trump administration imposed sanctions on 17 individuals in November, but these did not include several high-ranking Saudi officials implicated in the murder, including the Crown Prince. The attorney-general is seeking the death penalty for five of them.

Meanwhile, human rights groups, as well as dozens of foreign governments, have urged Saudi Arabia to cooperate with a United Nations-led investigation into the crime.
