Former Dubai Police chief Lieutenant General Dhahi Khalfan on Wednesday denounced the confusion shown by Turkish security in uncovering the details of the disappearance of Saudi writer and journalist Jamal Khashoggi, one week since his disappearance in Istanbul.
The outspoken former police chief told Al Arabiya English: “So-called unknown operation is not relevant in today’s crime science. Today, police forces have advanced capabilities to locate and determine those behind the crime.”
“The security authorities can determine the last location of Jamal Khashoggi, even without any surveillance cameras, and the logic of research and investigation, is that it can be reached and does not require all this ambiguity,” he said.
The Lieutenant General Dhahi Khalfan, confirmed that the case related to disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi does not require more than 72 hours in getting resolved. He said that before the body of the missing person can be found, it is impossible to talk about his death, and the case remains that of disappearance.
He even expressed his readiness to assist in uncovering who is behind abduction of Khashoggi in Istanbul. Khalfan pointed out the success of Dubai Police in uncovering the details of the assassination of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in 2010, in a hotel in Dubai within 72 hours, and accused agents of the Israeli intelligence “Mossad” of being behind the assassination.
Khalfan said during the interview: “Is there more complicated than Mossad operations? We revealed all those who were behind that crime in 72 hours. I can confirm that the most complex issues do not need more than 72 hours.”
Earlier, the outspoken former police chief said in a tweet: “We can help with revealing who kidnapped Khashoggi in Turkey… Our experience in revealing the Mossad enables us to show the truth within 48 hours.”
