Khashoggi murder: Interpol issues red notice for 20 suspects

  • Saudi Human Rights official: Brought perpetrators of Khashoggi murder to justice

He gave no names or other details, however, as the suspects' identities have not yet been made public.

Interpol issued a Red Notice for 20 Saudi suspects linked to the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Turkish media reported on Thursday.

After countries around the world, including every European Union member nation, encouraged Saudi Arabia to cooperate with an global investigation into the Washington Post journalist's death, Bandar bin Mohammed al-Aiban responded Thursday, saying his country already took care of everything.

Aiban, speaking before the U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva on Thursday, insisted that his country was taking all the "measures required for us to resolve this heinous crime".

Bandar bin Mohammed Al-Aiban replied simply that the case was "in the courts" in Saudi Arabia when asked by a reporter to respond to calls that the kingdom accept worldwide support in investigating the killing.

Turkish authorities requested red notices for 18 suspects on November 15 and for two on December 21 in 2018, the justice ministry said.


Bandar Al-Aiban, who heads Saudi Arabia's human rights commission, stressed though that any calls to "internationalise" the investigation "amount to an interference in our domestic affairs".

This move is one of many Saudi Arabia has been making to open its doors to the world.

After making numerous contradictory statements, it said Khashoggi was killed after negotiations to persuade him to return to Saudi Arabia failed - and later that 11 Saudis had been indicted and referred for trial over the case, without identifying them.

"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.

Riyadh has rejected accusations by the Central Intelligence Agency and some Western countries that the crown prince ordered the killing. Although Saudi prosecutors are seeking the death penalty over the incident, he assured that those found guilty were not being tortured.

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.
