Saudi Human Rights official: Brought perpetrators of Khashoggi murder to justice
SAUDI Arabia today reiterated its rejection of calls for an worldwide, independent investigation into the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, insisting it was well equipped to bring the perpetrators to justice.
In his remarks, the first substantive comments on the case by Saudi Arabia at a meeting of the U.N. Human Rights Council, Aiban said those on trial for what he described both as an "unfortunate accident" and a "heinous crime" had attended three hearings so far with their lawyers present.
The red notices were issued on 1 March at the request of the Istanbul Prosecutor's Office, the Turkish media specified.
Despite claims Qahtani was sacked by the Saudi leadership in the aftermath of Khashoggi's murder, the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal have reported that Qahtani continues to advise the crown prince.
Aiban's statements come a week after a rare censure of Saudi Arabia by 36 countries demanding transparency into the Khashoggi investigation. He was killed inside Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul on October 2. He gave no names or other details, however, as the suspects' identities have not yet been made public.
The Saudi public prosecutor's spokesman said late previous year that 11 Saudis had been indicted and referred for trial over the case, with authorities seeking the death penalty for five. Turkish authorities accuse the suspects of arriving in Turkey for Khashoggi's murder, including a cover-up team also in charge of dismembering his body.
Regarding Yemen's crisis, he said the Arab Coalition is committed to worldwide human rights law.
"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.

As Saudi officials continue to reject calls for an independent investigation, they have also continued to dispute accusations that the country's crown prince was involved in Khashoggi's killing. More than a month after his death, the Central Intelligence Agency concluded Salman ordered Khashoggi's death.
