Bin Salman has 'blood on his hands' over Khashoggi: Erdogan adviser

An adviser to Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has “blood on his hands” in the murder case of Saudi dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): An adviser to Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has “blood on his hands” in the murder case of Saudi dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

“It is a disgrace that reaches all the way to Crown Prince [Mohammed bin] Salman. At least five members of the execution team are [Mohammed bin] Salman’s right hands and are people that wouldn’t act without his knowledge,” Ilnur Cevik, an adviser to President Erdogan, wrote in a column in the Yeni Birlik newspaper, according to Reuters.

“Even if US President Trump saves [Mohammed bin] Salman, in the eyes of the world, he is a questionable person with Khashoggi’s blood on his hands,” Cevik wrote.

US resident Khashoggi was an outspoken critic of Riyadh, especially Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who contributed to The Washington Post.

He was visiting the consulate to obtain documents for his marriage, but he never left the mission.

Saudi officials originally insisted that Khashoggi had left the diplomatic mission after his paperwork was finished, but they finally admitted 17 days later that he had in fact been killed inside the building during "an altercation."
