KHASHOGGI: Saudi detains 18 people, dismisses 5 senior govt officials

The building housing Saudi Arabia’s diplomatic mission in Istanbul where Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed last year, has been sold, to apparently cover the murder of the pen-pusher, fresh reports reveal.

That much information was revealed by a Turkish broadcaster Habeturk TV, which further informed that the building, located in the upscale Levent neighbourhood, was sold more than a month ago to an undisclosed buyer for a third of its value.

“A new building for the consulate had already been purchased in Sariyer district, which also hosts the US Consulate,” it added.

Recall that Khashoggi, a Washington Post contributor who was living in the United States, had gone to his country’s consulate in Istanbul on October 2, 2018, to collect documents for his planned wedding when he was killed and his body dismembered.

Turkish media reports suggested his remains, which have never been found, were dissolved in acid.
