The Turkish government has placed  20 Saudis nationals on International Arrest warrant due to the gruesome murder of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul two years ago.

Naija News Understands that Turkish prosecutor who revealed the details of the 20 Saudis national said Two senior officers tied to  Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman were also linked to the murder.

The former royal court adviser Saud al-Qahtani and former deputy head of intelligence Ahmed al-Asiri were among the suspects charged with “instigating a premeditated murder with the intent of [causing] torment through fiendish instinct”, the office of the Istanbul chief prosecutor, Irfan Fida revealed.

The U.N. human rights investigator who led an international probe into the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi has also welcomed Turkey’s indictment of 20 Saudi nationals, saying it was needed as a “counterbalance to the travesty of justice at the hands of Saudi Arabia”.
