Turkish academic and columnist, Emre Uslu, presented on his Twitter account on Wednesday, evidence that contradicts the widespread scenarios surrounding the disappearance of Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi.
In a thread of tweets, Uslu said that he was trying to “highlight the major problems” in the Turkish police’s investigation, adding that he does not support any theory relating to the 15 Saudi tourists accused of having a hand in Khashoggi's disappearance.
Uslu cites the findings of the Turkish police, pointing out what they missed to provide.
3) According to the police, the "Saudi security team" came to Istanbul in Early hours and checked in Mövenpick Hotel. From there they went to Saudi Consulate to kill. Police only show CCTV camera footages from the hotel and embassy and resistance no footage from the street pic.twitter.com/c7W5a6xsWV— Emre Uslu (@EmreUslu) October 10, 2018
He adds that there are four bank security cameras from which footage of the falsely accused Saudi tourists could be presented.
4) Here is what I found: The distance between the hotel and the consulate is only 650 Mt. There are 4 banks on the street each bank has security cameras. Police don't show any of the camera footages from them to prove that they actually went to the Consulate pic.twitter.com/jBHYv078BT— Emre Uslu (@EmreUslu) October 10, 2018
In addition to the four cameras, Uslu says that google maps shows three others.
5) In addition to four banks' cameras, Google street view shows that there are at least two security surveillance cameras, one at the entrance of a park, the security cameras at the entrance of the consulate excluded. So at least 7 cameras in 650 meters. pic.twitter.com/XzS0Mx0ZjD— Emre Uslu (@EmreUslu) October 10, 2018
Concluding his argument, the Turkish columnist posed a question around the reason footage from these cameras were not shared by Turkish police.
6) It means that every inch of that street is recorded by cameras. Yet, Turkish intelligence footages shared with the media have not shown alleged Saudi team's movement from hotel to the consulate, why? They need to show this to make their claim convincing.— Emre Uslu (@EmreUslu) October 10, 2018
