One of the murderers of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi heard saying, "I know how to cut" on an audio tape of the murder, President Recep Erdogan said today.
Erdogan also hit Riyadh hard because the altered account of how Khashoggi, a columnist from Washington Post and prominent critic of the Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, was assassinated on 2 October at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
Turkey shared the sound of the murders that researchers had found with US and European officials to put pressure on the Saudi's.
The journalist had gone to the consulate to collect divorce papers for his upcoming marriage with his Turkish fiancée.
The case has caused worldwide outrage and has damaged the international status of the 33-year-old crown prince, the actual ruler of the kingdom.
Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that one of the murderers of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was told: "I know how to cut" on an audio tape of the killings
The US Senate delivered a rare reprimand to President Donald Trump yesterday for his support to the crown prince, whom he blamed for the murder.
Erdogan said in a speech in Istanbul today: "The United States, Germany, France, Canada, we have let them all listen …" The man clearly says: & # 39; I know how to cut & # 39 ;.
& # 39; This man is a soldier. These are all audio recordings, & # 39 ;.
But he did not give any further details about the recording.
The chief prosecutor of Istanbul said that Khashoggi was suffocated by his murderers at the consulate, before his body was dismembered and thrown away. His remains have not been found.
Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was assassinated on 2 October by a shot at the consulate in Istanbul.
Khashoggi repeatedly told his killers & # 39; I can not breathe & # 39; during his last moments, CNN reported Monday and quoted a source who said that they had read the entire translated transcript of an audio recording.
Saudi Arabia said that the prince had no prior knowledge of the murder.
After offering countless contradictory statements, Riyad later said that Khashoggi had been killed when negotiations to persuade him to return to Saudi Arabia failed.
Erdogan renewed his criticism of Riyadh's explanation of killing. Originally it had been said that Khashoggi had left the consulate.
That was disputed by his Turkish fiancée, who had waited outside the building and said that he had never surfaced.
Khashoggi was last seen living in the Saudi consulate and he has not been seen since
& # 39; The prince says that Jamal Khashoggi has left the consulate. Is Jamal Khashoggi a child? His fiancé is waiting outside, "Erdogan said.
& # 39; They think the world is stupid. This nation is not stupid and knows how to justify people. & # 39;
Turkish officials said last week that the Istanbul prosecutor had decided that "suspicion & # 39; that Saud al-Qahtani, a senior assistant of Prince Mohammed, and General Ahmed al-Asiri, who was deputy chief of foreign intelligence, were among the planners of killing Khashoggi.
After Riyadh handed over the two men, Turkey said this week that the world must seek justice for Khashoggi according to international law.
Erdogan has repeatedly said that he would not give up the case. Trump said he wants Washington to assist the Saudi government and the prince, despite the CIA assessment that it was probably the prince who ordered Khashoggi's murder.
Turkey is looking for the arrest of two allies of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman about the murder of Khashoggi
US President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he was in favor of the crown prince of Saudi Arabia despite a CIA review that he ordered the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi and begged US Senators to condemn Trump the actual ruler of the kingdom.
Trump refused to comment on whether crown prince Mohammed bin Salman was complicit in the murder, but he perhaps provided his most explicit expression of support to the prince since Khashoggi's death more than two months ago.
Turkey is looking for the arrest of two allies of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman about the killing of Khashoggi.
The couple was removed from their position in October while Saudi Arabia detained 21 people and says it seeks the death penalty for five people over the murder, causing international outrage.
Turkey has tried to hand 18 suspects, including 15 members of an alleged murder team who were accused of murdering and dismissing the writer.
