Turkey has 2nd audio recording on Khashoggi killing

Hürriyet columnist Abdulkadir Selvi reported on Nov. 16 that Turkey has more evidence, including a second, longer audio recording that contradicts with key findings of the Saudi public prosecutor’s indictment against the suspected murderers of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

While indicting the suspects, the prosecutor also claimed that they killed the journalist after a botched attempt aiming either to persuade him to return to Saudi Arabia or do it by force after drugging and kidnapping him.

According to the Turkish columnist, a set of findings and evidence in Turkey’s own probe disprove some of the Saudi prosecutor’s claims over the killing.
