Trudeau: Canadian intelligence has heard Jamal Khashoggi death tapes
Nov 14, 2018, 01:30
The remarks, which were said to have been picked up in a recording collected by Turkish intelligence, were made shortly after the journalist, a USA resident, was killed in the Saudi consulate in Turkey, three people familiar with the recording told the New York Times.
They see it as the strongest evidence linking the kingdom's de facto ruler to the murder of Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last month.
In the phone call, which came shortly after Khashoggi's murder on October 2 inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Mutreb instructed his superior in Arabic to "tell your boss" that the murder mission had been accomplished.
Turkish officials have said that the audio does not conclusively implicate Crown Prince Mohammed, and US intelligence and other government officials have cautioned that however compelling the recording may be, it is still not irrefutable evidence of his involvement in the death of Khashoggi.
Prince Mohammed is controversially linked to both: he has played a direct role in overseeing Saudi Arabia'sYemen intervention and has also been accused of orchestrating the October 2 murder of Khashoggi, who was a U.S. resident.
Saudi Arabia has changed its narrative about the murder several times amid global outcry and intensifying scepticism over its account.
On Sunday US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke with the Saudi crown prince on the telephone and "emphasised that the United States will hold all of those involved in the killing of Jamal Khashoggi accountable, and that Saudi Arabia must do the same."? He is the first Western leader to confirm that he has listened to these recordings.
Turkish authorities have been selectively leaking information to local media, including alleged recordings of the killing.
The media outlet wrote that it remains unclear which company Nader suggested, but he purportedly said that it was run by former British special operations personnel.
President Donald Trump has expressed reluctance to punish Saudi Arabia economically, citing its multi-billion-dollar purchases of military equipment and investments in USA firms.
"If there is miscommunication between the French government's various agencies, it is up to the French authorities - not Turkey - to take care of that problem", Erdogan's communications director Fahrettin Altun said.
Yet some of those implicated in the killing are close to the crown prince.
The paper said that al-Assiri attended a meeting in March 2017 in Riyadh where businessmen pitched a $2bn plan to use private intelligence operatives to try to sabotage the Iranian economy.
Erdogan did not elaborate on how and when the Saudi official heard the recording of the killing of the Saudi citizen.
Some Trump advisers have argued that they would need indisputable evidence of Crown Prince Mohammed's involvement in Khashoggi's killing before they would punish him or the kingdom more harshly.
Pentagon chief Jim Mattis said he supported Saudi Arabia's decision after the official Saudi Press Agency said the coalition asked for the "cessation of inflight refueling support" from the United States.
