Saudi Arabia Foreign Minister says suspects involved in the murder of Khashoggi would be prosecuted in Saudi.
Adel al-Jubeir in a statement made on Saturday 27 October rejected the demand made by Turkey to extradite suspects of Khashoggi’s murder, said those who were involved in the killing of the Washington columnist, Jamal Khashoggi would be persecuted in Saudi.
“On the issue of extradition, the individuals are Saudi nationals. They’re detained in Saudi Arabia, and the investigation is in Saudi Arabia, and they will be prosecuted in Saudi Arabia,” Adel al-Jubeir said.
After a series of denial by the Kingdom, Saudi has, however, admitted that the columnist was killed in its consulate in Turkey, Istanbul.
He has also criticized the global questioning of Khashoggi’s murder, as it has been issued that 18 persons were suspected in the disappearance of Khashoggi.
“The issue has become fairly hysterical,” also that investigations take time and facts should be determined as inquiries are on.
He added that Saudi enforcement in Turkey is working with their Turkish counterparts.
