Khashoggi murder perpetrators brought to justice, Saudi tells UN

Interpol issues red notice for Khashoggi killing

Interpol issues red notice for Khashoggi killing

Saudi Arabia has not provided pertinent details of its investigation into last year's killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul, the State Department said on Wednesday in its annual Country Reports on Human Rights Practices.

The Saudi human rights commission rejected calls for an worldwide investigation into Jamal Khashoggi's murder, saying they've already punished the killers who they refused to name or give any details about.

Addressing the United Nations Human Rights Council, Dr.al-Aiban said "we are horrified at Khashoggi killing" and that it was a "heinous crime" and an "unfortunate accident".

Citing the Turkish Justice Ministry, Daily Sabah said the red notice was originally issued on 1 March as part of an investigation by the Istanbul Chief Public Prosecutor's Office into Khashoggi's murder. Saudi authorities have denied Turkey's requests and said the suspects will be tried in the kingdom.

"What is being conveyed by certain media regarding the need for us to internationalise some of these matters is something we do not accept because such demands amount to interference in our domestic affairs and in our domestic judicial system", he told the forum in Geneva.

Trump says late-night shows 'one-sided' and 'unwatchable'
Jimmy Kimmel asked Kanye West why the rapper thought President Trump cared about black people when he had him on. On Wednesday the president longed for the days when Jay Leno sat in the comfy seat on the "Tonight" show on NBC.

"Justice in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia operates pursuant to global law and it does so in all transparency", Aiban told the Geneva forum during a review of Saudi's rights record.

The report says a range of human rights abuses have taken place in Saudi Arabia, including the arrest of at least 20 prominent women's rights activists, executions for nonviolent offenses, forced disappearances and torture of prisoners.

Three dozen Western countries, including all 28 European Union members, called on Saudi Arabia last week to cooperate with a UN-led investigation into the murder of Khashoggi, a critic and Washington Post columnist.

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

His killing in October caused tensions to soar between the USA and Saudi Arabia, with members of Congress saying they believed the crown prince was behind the operation, an allegation the Saudi government has denied.
