Jamal Khashoggi was killed last year inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. The western world and CIA blamed this on the crown prince but the official said that they have no role in it.
The crown prince talking to the makers of the documentary titled “The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia” said, “It happened under my watch. I get all the responsibility because it happened under my watch”. Earlier Saudi narrative blamed the murder on rogue operatives.
As per reports former royal adviser, Saud al-Qahtani gave the nod for Khashoggi’s killing over Skype to the killers. Saudi suspects were put on trials post the killings of the journalist. A United Nations report calls for investigation on Prince Mohammed and other Saudi Officials.
The Journalist was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Turkey in October last year. His body was reportedly dismembered and removed from the consulate building, and his remains have not been found.
