Istanbul, Oct 26 (IENews) Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called on Saudi Arabia to disclose the location of the body of slain journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Erdogan said Riyadh needs to disclose the identity of the “local cooperator” who purportedly took Khashoggi’s body from Saudi agents after The Washington Post columnist was killed at the consulate in Istanbul on October 2.
Speaking on October 26 to provincial members of his AK Party in parliament, Erdogan said that Turkey has other “information and evidence” about Khashoggi’s killing in the Saudi Consulate.
Erdogan said Saudi’s public prosecutor was due to meet the Istanbul prosecutor in Istanbul on October 28. The kingdom’s public prosecutor said on October 25 the killing of Khashoggi in the consulate in Istanbul was premeditated, reversing previous official statements that his death was unintended.
