  • Saudi Human Rights official: Brought perpetrators of Khashoggi murder to justice

Saudi Arabia on Thursday reiterated its rejection of calls for an global, independent investigation into the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, insisting it was well equipped to bring the perpetrators to justice.

Three dozen Western countries, including all 28 European Union members, called on Saudi Arabia last week to cooperate with a UN-led investigation into the murder of Khashoggi, a critic and Washington Post columnist.

"What is being conveyed by certain media regarding the need for us to internationalise some of these matters is something we do not accept because such demands amount to interference in our domestic affairs and in our domestic judicial system", he told the forum in Geneva. While he provided no names or details about the men who have been charged, he assured the 47-member council that Saudi Arabia is adhering to its own constitutional principles as well as worldwide law.

"We would like to assume that Mr al-Aiban's remarks reflected his personal views rather than the official position of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia - our friend and kin".

The CIA concluded late past year that bin Salman ordered the journalist's assassination, an accusation that has been echoed by U.S. senators and other observers.

Khashoggi was killed in the kingdom's Istanbul Consulate on October 2, 2018, by a team of 15 people consisting of Saudi officials who arrived in Turkey for his murder and a cover-up team also in charge of dismembering Khashoggi's body.

The head of its Human Right's Commission made a statement at a United Nations human rights conference in Geneva without giving any details.

Al-Aiban described the murder as an "unfortunate accident".

Saudi Arabian officials initially denied Khashoggi was killed, then they claimed he died in a brawl and eventually admitted the killing was premeditated.

"None of their human rights have been violated and they have been subjected to no form of torture or cruel" treatment, Aiban clarified.

Aiban said the case against the suspects is ongoing and so far, they have appeared in court for three hearings with their lawyers present. In 2013, it accepted 151 out of 225 recommendations.
