Jamal Khashoggi Was Strangled And Dismembered: Turkish Prosecutor

Hatice Cengiz said President Trump 'should help reveal the truth'

The head of the Saudi investigation into the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Attorney General Sheikh Saud al-Mojeb (left) leaves the Saudi Arabia consulate Tuesday in Istanbul.

Chief prosecutor Irfan Fidan said a meeting with his Saudi counterpart on Monday yielded "no concrete results".

Hatice Cengiz, the fiancee of the killed Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, speaks during a memorial event for her fiancee in London.

"The Saudi officials seemed primarily interested in finding out what evidence the Turkish authorities had against the perpetrators", the official told AFP on the condition of anonymity.

On Monday Mujeb offered Fidan the suspects' testimony, however Turkey is insistent that they stand trial and give evidence on Turkish soil.

"Either the Saudi foreign minister or the 18 suspects must explain who the local co-conspirators are. This investigation should be concluded as soon as possible", Çavuşoğlu said, adding that the whole world was waiting for the outcome.

Oil heads for third weekly slump as market selloff accelerates
Still, oil markets remain nervous ahead of USA sanctions against Iran's crude exports, which kick in from November 4. With U.S. sanctions on Iran coming into effect on November 4, the global oil trade will surely feel the impact.

Asked if politics would triumph over the truth in this case, Cengiz said "yes", and she called on Trump to order a thorough investigation. Both Saudi Arabia and Turkey are investigating Khashoggi's death.

Under mounting global pressure, Saudi Arabia has changed its narrative about Khashoggi's killing several times, and has recently acknowledging that Turkish evidence shows it was premeditated. While the Saudis have denied ordering his death, they acknowledge that the journalist, who fled the country previous year, died in an altercation with several men inside the consulate building, an incident Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir described as a "rogue operation".

The Gulf state then admitted Khashoggi's killing was premeditated and a result of a "rogue operation". A critic of the Saudi crown prince, Khashoggi had been living in exile in the United States.

"He thought of the possibility of them capturing him", Cengiz said, adding that consulate staff on September 28 were so cordial it made the USA -based reporter homesick for Saudi Arabia.

They say Ahmad is likely to lead an effort to curtail the power of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, widely referred to as MBS, and argue for the appointment of a senior royal to act as a "guardian" for the crown prince. She also expressed disappointment in how the US has handled the controversy over Khashoggi's murder and the resulting investigation.

She further noted that it is important to determine whether serious human rights violations - such as torture, summary execution or enforced disappearance - were committed and to identify those implicated, "irrespective of their official capacity".
