Interpol issued red notices for 20 people over Khashoggi killing - Turkey

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

Addressing the United Nations Human Rights Council, Dr.al-Aiban said "we are horrified at Khashoggi killing" and that it was a "heinous crime" and an "unfortunate accident".

President of the Human Rights Commission of Saudi Arabia, Bandar bin Mohammed Al-Aiban, pictured in November, told the UN Human Rights Council on Thursday the accused killers behind Jamal Khashoggi's death are being brought to justice.

Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2, provoking an global outcry.

We deeply regret that Saudi Arabia rejected a recommendation to fully cooperate with United Nations human rights mechanisms to investigate allegations of violations of worldwide humanitarian law in Yemen.

He said his country "refutes completely" calls for parts of the legal process to be "internationalized", saying such demands cast doubt on the integrity of the Saudi judicial system.

Interpol issued the notices on March 1, the ministry said on Twitter, without giving further details on the suspects.

Saudi Arabia initially said it had no knowledge of his fate.

Aiban also rejected any outside probes into what happened to Khashoggi.

After making numerous contradictory statements, it said Khashoggi was killed after negotiations to persuade him to return to Saudi Arabia failed - and later that 11 Saudis had been indicted and referred for trial over the case, without identifying them.

On Thursday, critics of the government's handling of the investigation, including Yahya Assiri, a Saudi human rights activist, noted the omission of any mention of the kingdom's powerful crown prince. The attorney-general is seeking the death penalty for five of them.

Although a country rich with exceptional natural, cultural, and heritage sites, Saudi Arabia is only now developing its tourism sector beyond its current structure, which has been created to cater all-year-round to religious pilgrims.
