UAE spy suspect found 'hanged' in Turkish prison

He was arrested with another man on the 15th of April and was charged four days later with "political, military and global espionage" - after both men allegedly confessed to spying on UAE dissidents.

At the time of their detention, Turkish officials said that one of the two suspects had arrived in Turkey only a few days after the killing of Khashoggi.

The man was taken into custody with another alleged spy as authorities probed whether they were tied to the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi last October in Istanbul.

The prosecutor's office said his body was discovered Sunday hanging from the bathroom door of the one-person cell he was being held in at Silivri prison, on the outskirts of Istanbul.

A man accused of being a spy for the United Arab Emirates has been found dead in his prison cell in Turkey.

Saudi Arabia and the UAE also view Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan's Islamist-rooted ruling AK Party as a supporter of groups like the Muslim Brotherhood, which they oppose.

The prosecutor's office identified him as Zaki Y.M. Hasan. The official said that the pair had confessed. "We were surprised by his arrest since April 4, and we were more shocked by the false accusations against him", Yusuf added. So far, the the Saudi public prosecutor has charged 11 people in connection with Khashoggi's murder. The journalist and Washington Post contributor, a critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was killed by Saudi agents in Istanbul on October 2, according to Saudi and Turkish prosecutors.
