Saudi source: Crown prince had no knowledge of ‘specific’ Khashoggi operation
Saudi Arabia’s crown prince had no knowledge of the specific operation that resulted in the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul this month, a Saudi source said according to Reuters.
The Saudi prosecutor said on Friday that the investigation showed the death of Saudi national Jamal Khashoggi was a result of a physical fight at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
The prosecutor’s investigation also pointed out that the discussions that took place between Khashoggi and those who met him while he was in the consulate in Istanbul led to a brawl which led to his death.
In addition, the Public Prosecutor's Office confirmed that its investigations into this case are continuing with 18 suspects identified and detained, all of whom are Saudi nationals.
The Saudi prosecutor said that investigations are ongoing and aimed at reaching all the facts and that they will hold those accountable and bring them to justice.
