Son of Jamal Khashoggi Has Left Saudi Arabia Despite Travel Ban

Hatice Cengiz made the comments on Turkish television on Friday in her first interview since Khashoggi's death.

Saudi authorities originally said Khashoggi died during a fight with officials in the consulate, and that his body was removed by an unidentified person.

Salah Khashoggi, who holds dual U.S. -Saudi citizenship and had thus far been under a travel ban, departed Saudi Arabia on Wednesday.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has called Khashoggi's murder a "savage killing" and demanded Riyadh punish those responsible, no matter how highly placed.

U.S. CIA Director Gina Haspel heard an audio of the killing during a visit to Turkey this week, sources told Reuters, and she briefed President Donald Trump about Turkey's findings and her discussions after her return to Washington on Thursday.

"Information obtained from Turkey indicates that suspects in the case planned the act in advance", the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) quoted Saudi Public Prosecutor Saud al-Mujeb as saying Thursday.

His death has angered the worldwide community and Turkish authorities are leading an investigation to find out exactly what happened to the 59-year-old who was an eminent critic of the Saudi regime.

The developments came after the kingdom on October 25 cited evidence showing Khashoggi's killing was premeditated, changing its story again to try to ease global outrage over the slaying of a prominent critic of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Trump also said Riyad had staged the "worst cover-up ever" over the killing.


"I do not trust the USA", she told the Telegraph.

A member of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's entourage on foreign trips was seen at the consulate before the Washington Post columnist's death.

"They're detained in Saudi Arabia, and the investigation is in Saudi Arabia, and they will be prosecuted in Saudi Arabia", Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said. Key mysteries remaining include whether the killing was carried out with the knowledge of the crown prince, who denies it, and the location of Khashoggi's body.

The State Department deputy spokesman Robert Palladino said that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had pressured the Saudi government for Salah's return to the USA, as he holds dual citizenship.

Speaking at a meeting of the ruling Justice and Development Party, Erdogan said the Saudi prosecutor will meet his Turkish counterpart during the visit.

Saudi officials also admitted this week that those agents plans to murder Khashoggi - who has been critical of the Saudi kingdom - was "premeditated".

"If I knew something like this would happen", she said.

"It is not that we don't have any other information or documents".

For Erdogan, who has ruled Turkey since 2003, the crime has provided grounds for pushing back against Saudi Arabia, one of its regional rivals, and weakening the credibility of the crown prince.
