The Turkish journalist associated with Sabah newspaper, who is based in Washington, has denied claim that the daily has audio recording of Saudi citizen and journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s interrogation at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on October, 2.

The journalist, Ragip Soylu, confirmed in a tweet sent out on Tuesday denying reports that the Turkish newspaper has recording related to Khashoggi presence inside the consulate.

 

His clarification comes after other Turkish news outlets reported that Sabah has obtained a three-minutes video proof that Jamal Khashoggi was inside the Saudi consulate and claims that he was tortured and murdered.

This is the latest in a series of retractions of fabricated news surrounding the disappearance of the Saudi citizen on October 2 in Istanbul. This was another example of the orchestrated anti-Saudi media campaign done without corroborating sources.
