Saudi Arabia’s crown prince on Wednesday denounced the death of the late Jamal Khashoggi as a “heinous crime” that was hurtful to the Saudis and the world and vowed that authorities were working with Turkey to complete the investigations.
“The crime was very painful to all Saudis. And it is painful, heinous to every human being in the world,” Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said during his appearance at the Future Investment Initiative Forum in Riyadh.
“Those behind this crime will be held accountable... in the end justice will prevail,” he said.
The much-anticipated session on Wednesday brought together the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud, Bahraini Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa and Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri.
They spoke on how global leaders can continue to build the region into a global economic powerhouse.
