Rabat – The dismembered body parts of the murdered Saudi journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, have allegedly been found in the garden of the Saudi consul general’s home.
According to Sky News sources, the writer’s body was “cut up” and his face “disfigured.”
One of the sources implied Khashoggi’s remains were found in the garden of the Saudi consul general’s home.
Erdogan called on Saudi authorities today to provide information on where the body is and who ordered his murder.
He said, “Why has the body of someone who was officially said to have been killed not been found yet? Who is the local collaborator who disposed of Khashoggi’s body? Saudi must answer all these questions.“
On October 19, Saudi Arabia announced that the journalist was killed on October 2 during a “fistfight” in his visit to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. The kingdom also said it arrested 18 suspects and fired 5 top officials.
The international community, however, questioned the account, pressuring Saudi Arabia to provide more information about the murder.
Erdogan described the murder as “very savage” and a political assassination.
While Erdogan did not reveal how the journalist was killed, the president confirmed that the journalist’s murder “did not happen at the drop of a dime but was a planned affair.”
Erdogan also urged Saudi authorities to provide answers on who ordered the 15-man Saudi team to kill the journalist.
“When the murder was so clear, why were there so many different statements given by Saudis? ” Erdogan said.
