Jamal Ahmad Khashoggi was a Saudi Arabian journalist, author, and the former general manager of Al-Arab News Channel.
Khashoggi was a disparager of Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman, went missing on October 2. After visiting the consulate in Istanbul to receive documents for his upcoming marriage. He was planning to marry with Hatice Cengiz, a 36-year old Ph.D. candidate at a university in Istanbul.
Unfortunately, before that, he was tagged as a “missing person”. Moreover, news claimed that he died while he was inside the consulate. On October 15, an inspection team including both Saudi and Turkish officials began inspecting the consulate. The Turkish officials found some proofs of ‘tampering’ and this became an evidence enough for concluding that Khashoggi had been killed already.
The Saudi Kingdom claimed that on Saturday Khashoggi died after a “fist-fight” inside the building. In this case, they arrested 18 Saudi citizens. After weeks of refusal, for the first time, Saudi Arabia confirmed that Jamal Khashoggi died inside the consulate in Istanbul.
What amazes the world at the moment is that the remains of Khashoggi are still not found. The police have expanded its search far to Belgard Forest, near Istanbul. Also, in a rural area near the city of Yalova, a one-hour drive south of Istanbul. The inspection team further referred to a villa for the location spots where Khashoggi’s body may have been dumped.
US President much more concerned about the Khashoggi’s murder case
Several countries including Germany, France, Britain, Bahrain, and also the UN and the European Union have asked Saudi Arabia to clear out the “assassination of Jamal Khashoggi” to the world.
The US President seems to be much more serious and concerned about Khashoggi’s murder case. He swore: severe punishment responsible for this occurrence.
He actually blames Saudi Arabia for the disappearance of Khashoggi due to his death inside the Istanbul consulate. But Trump doesn’t seem to back up form the remunerable arms deal that the US has made with the Saudi Kingdom. Trump acknowledges the murder of Khashoggi as “bad stuff”.
