Turkey Suspends Trial of 26 Saudis Accused of Jamal Khashoggi Murder Plot

HeadlineApr 07, 2022

Turkey has suspended the trial of 26 Saudi men accused of killing and dismembering Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul in 2018. The suspects were being tried in absentia. Turkish officials say they’ll now turn over the case to prosecutors in Saudi Arabia. Human rights groups say that will lead to a cover-up of the assassination plot, whose alleged masterminds — including Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman — have not faced justice. Last month, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson traveled to the kingdom and met with Mohammed bin Salman, asking Saudi Arabia to pump more oil, after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine led to soaring gas prices.
