No need for global investigators into Khashoggi murder, says Saudi Arabia

Saudi Human Rights official: Brought perpetrators of Khashoggi murder to justice

It also criticized Mr.al-Aiban's rejection of any foreign investigation.

The Red Notice was issued on March 1 upon Turkey's request, local NTV channel quoted Turkish Justice Ministry officials as saying.

Saudi Arabia initially said it had no knowledge of his fateIt has since blamed rogue agents for Khashoggi s death and the kingdom s public prosecutor has charged 11 people over his murder.

Amid calls for Saudi Arabia to cooperate with a United Nations -led investigation into the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the head of the kingdom's Human Rights Commission said on Thursday the accused killers were being brought to justice and reiterated the government's opposition to suggestions for an worldwide probe into the case. As a member of this Council, Saudi Arabia has an obligation to cooperate with Council mechanisms.

On Thursday, Aiban said the suspects had faced three hearings so far in Saudi Arabia with their lawyers present.

Interpol issued a Red Notice for 20 Saudi suspects linked to the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Turkish media reported on Thursday.

But the responses provided by Saudi Arabia in some cases fail to match the reality on the ground, and in others reflect an unwillingness to bring national laws and practices into conformity with global law. "We find it hard to understand why an official working in the area of human rights would possibly be unsettled by efforts to shed light on all aspects of the Khashoggi murder", the Turkish presidency said. More than a month after his death, the Central Intelligence Agency concluded Salman ordered Khashoggi's death.

The suspects, he said, "were entitled to a fair trial. and none of their human rights have been violated, and they have been subjected to no form of torture or cruel and inhuman treatment".

The Trump administration imposed sanctions on 17 individuals in November, but these did not include several high-ranking Saudi officials implicated in the murder, including the Crown Prince.

Agnes Callamard, the UN's special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, was in Turkey in late January to probe what happened to the journalist.
