Turkey won't let Khashoggi killers escape justice - Erdogan

Jamal Khashoggi was killed after going into the consulate on 2 October

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman attends the investment conference in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia October 23, 2018.

A defiant Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman said Wednesday "justice will be served in the end" during his first public remarks about the investigation into the controversial death of activist Jamal Khashoggi.

But reports have linked Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to the killing.

He called the killing of Khashoggi "a total fiasco" and says Saudi Arabia never should have thought about killing the dissident Washington Post contributor.

Roughly three weeks ago Khashoggi went missing after visiting a Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey and was eventually revealed to have been killed.

Khashoggi, who was a columnist for The Washington Post, died inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul earlier this month.

But President Erdogan of Turkey has said the journalist was the victim of a carefully planned "political murder" by Saudi intelligence officers and other officials.

Many world leaders have condemned the murder of the prominent Saudi critic and demanded a full investigation.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan vowed Turkey would not allow the culprits to get away with "savage murder".

This year's summit has been overshadowed by the killing of Mr Khashoggi on 2 October. Saudi Arabia has said his death was the result of a "rogue operation" by people acting beyond the scope of their authority, and 18 Saudis have been arrested.

According to the report, Turkish security forces examined the consulate building but Saudi officials did not give them permission to search the garden of the consulate and a well in it.

It is only recently that the government of Saudi Arabia has confirmed that Khashoggi was killed inside the consulate. "We're making very clear that the United States does not tolerate this kind of ruthless action to silence Mr. Khashoggi, a journalist, through violence".

The French government last week announced they will suspend all political visits to Saudi Arabia, saying they are also prepared to join any worldwide effort to sanction those found guilty of Khashoggi's murder.

Erdogan did not blame Crown Prince Mohammed by name in his speech.

Twenty-one Saudis will have their USA visas revoked or will be made ineligible for future visas, the State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Tuesday.

Even in the face of ugly details of Jamal Khashoggi's slaying, Trump has resisted calls to cut off arms sales to the kingdom and has been reluctant to antagonise the Saudi rulers.
