Khashoggi case should not be politicized, says United Nations expert

United Nations rights office spokeswoman, Ravina Shamdasani, on Tuesday echoed calls for "a prompt, impartial and independent investigation of the circumstances of Mr Khashoggi's disappearance and to keep the findings public" in comments to journalists in Geneva.

Nour told Middle East Eye on Wednesday that, in the wake of the disappearence of Khashoggi in the Saudi embassy in Istanbul, critical voices like Nour's - who also lives in Turkey - were at risk of being silenced.

In making that determination, the senators hope Trump "will consider any relevant information, including with respect to the highest ranking officials in the Government of Saudi Arabia".

President Donald Trump says the U.S.is "demanding" answers and wants to bring his fiancee to the White House. 'After the consulate, we were going to buy appliances for our new home and set a date.

"We don't know what has happened to him".

In government-aligned newspapers and on social media, many Saudis have advanced a narrative that the accusations are part of an insidious campaign to smear their country - pointing fingers at Turkey, Qatar and the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist group that Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies consider a terrorist organisation. "We call for an independent global investigation to determine as quickly as possible what has happened to Khashoggi".

Of the crown prince, who is often referred to as "MBS", Corker went on to say, "MBS is a person of the future".

According to a report published Tuesday night by The Washington Post - for which Mr. Khashoggi was a regular opinion contributor - American spy agencies collected communications that suggest a premeditated plot was carried out against the journalist.

Sabah newspaper, which is close to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, on Wednesday revealed the identities of what it called a "mysterious" 15-member "assassination squad" who were allegedly involved in Khashoggi's disappearance.

The team's first finding was counting 26 cars in the Saudi consulate fleet, four of which are suspected of carrying out suspicious activities related to the disappearance of Khashoggi, 59. Yet Jamal did not think the Saudis could force him to stay at the consulate in Turkey, even if they wanted to arrest him. Under the Vienna Convention, foreign diplomatic missions are sovereign territory and a host country can not enter without permission. Paul is pushing Congress to block future arms sales to Saudi Arabia.

Cristiano Ronaldo: The Juventus star's lawyer has released a statement in which the footballer vehemently denies rape allegations made against him, and branded documents purportedly containing his admissions to the contrary as "complete fabrications".

"The administration is so close to Saudi Arabia", Scarborough told Ignatius.

Istanbul police experts were analysing vehicles which entered and left the consulate, some of which were then seen on camera on October 2 at the consul-general's residence, 200 metres away, the daily said.
