Erdogan Comments on UN Report on Khashoggi Murder (special)

ANKARA, NETRALNEWS.COM -- Those responsible for the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi have to suffer the consequences and brought to justice, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday when responding to a UN report on the murder case.

On Wednesday morning Agnes Callamard, the UN special rapporteur on extra-judicial matters, revealed evidence showing Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman and a number of other senior officials were responsible for the murder of Khashoggi.

Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister, Adel al-Jubeir, rejected the investigator's report by calling it "nothing new".

Speaking at an event in Istanbul, Erdogan said the findings in Callamard's report proved that Turkey had been misused in the process, according to Antara.
