Interpol issues red notices to detain Saudi suspects in Khashoggi case

April FrancisMar 16, 2019

In an interview with Al Jazeera, Assiri said Aiban's refusal to allow an worldwide independent investigation suggests officials at the highest levels "are hiding something".

Bandar bin Mohammed al-Aiban made the comments as Turkey's Justice Ministry said Interpol had issued red notices - asking police worldwide to locate and provisionally arrest a person pending extradition - for 20 people regarding Mr. Khashoggi's death.

Some Western governments have accused Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of being implicated in the murder.

Khashoggi was brutally murdered at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul last October. " While not naming any names, he said that 11 Saudi citizens had been indicted for the "heinous crime" previous year".

Aiban said the case against the suspects is ongoing and so far, they have appeared in court for three hearings with their lawyers present.

"Saudi Arabia is a sovereign country".

John Vandemoer, a former Stanford University sailing coach who worked with Singer, also pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy. Huffman was taken into custody on Tuesday and charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

Three dozen countries, including Turkey, called on Saudi Arabia last week to cooperate with a United Nations -led investigation into the murder of Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and critic of the kingdom's rulership. "We find it hard to understand why an official working in the area of human rights would possibly be unsettled by efforts to shed light on all aspects of the Khashoggi murder", the Turkish presidency said.

"Justice in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia operates pursuant to worldwide law and it does so in all transparency", Al-Aiban told the Geneva forum.

The human rights review coincided with reports from Yemeni military officials that the Saudi-led coalition launched airstrikes which mistakenly killed and wounded forces allied with the government, who the coalition support.

The suspects, he said, "were entitled to a fair trial. and none of their human rights have been violated, and they have been subjected to no form of torture or cruel and inhuman treatment".

Agnes Callamard, UN investigator on extrajudicial executions, said that Saudi officials have not responded to requests to cooperate with her investigation into the murder.
