door to corruption and a brain drain to the private sector. and to corruption experts say cutting the most exorbitant salaries is needed but applying the measure across the board could backfire. the consequences of cutting everyone salary is that even though it's a noble aim to slash the pay of high level bureaucrats the medium and low level ones who are specialists and technicians aren't going to have enough incentives to stay in power. coffers and make the changes we need there are also worries that instead of taking the hit themselves those at the top could fire employees will trim their benefits to fit the shrinking budget it's now up to the new administration to check the good intentions to turn into power change john home and . crew city the body of a seven year old girl who died while in u.s. border patrol custody has now arrived in guatemala jacqueline cals coffin was picked up by foreign ministry officials in guatemala city her grandfather told the

and a warm welcome to the program. the murder. shocked the world and drew international outrage demanded answers from the saudi kingdom with turkey leading the calls president. eighteen saudi extradited to. trial and says he's determined to find out who gave the order to kill believing it came from the highest levels of the saudi government. as time goes by the office the case might be. the fallout from casualties made has been felt in different parts of the world saudi arabia has revamped its intelligence services and fired two senior officials with al asiri and south africa tunney who are accused of being behind the fifteen man hit squad sent to istanbul both were
9:23 am
close to mohammed bin saw none of the u.s. senate last week blamed the crown prince for the murder off the cia reportedly concluded he ordered it the united states which has provided military support for the coalition fighting the war in yemen has the kingdom to end hostilities them and earlier this month a ceasefire was agreed between the yemeni government and who think rebels in the port of her data thank you with end the discussion and joining us here on inside story to do so from anchorage we have no oars can buy a bureau chief for the daily sabah in london sami handy as to in chief of international interest and from miami via skype robert gucci associate professor at lancaster university a very warm welcome to all of you and now let's start with you how's the quest for justice over the murder of jamal khashoggi lost it's been mentum. actually i don't
9:24 am
see any indicator to make the skunk lose in. terms of losing the memory momentum and the perspective of from the perspective of turkish government so let's look at the present that runs latest words in the center fourteen during the oil sea meeting so prisoner and on was so decisive on the trial and the dollar evidences and the whole process will be clear as much as two months ago when the actually the murder what took place in istanbul so prison and on again sad that in on the line that the whole evidences and the whole stabs throughout the murder will be rebuild step by step by the turkish government so turkish government and turkey doesn't have any hesitation to bring up the whole evidences or request the insisting that request and the men demand from the saudi government to shed
9:25 am
light on the case but as you say that was december fourteenth that was ten days ago we've had very little since then of course of events carry on and overtake events such as the. weather we next going to hear from turkey on this. so as you mentioned doing ten days. been a lot of things actually turkey has been going trip about the syria about the other national security interests about the why p.g. and syrian border but again i would like to point out that turkey doesn't doesn't seem at least as we have observed me as a journalist doesn't seem that turkey will step back in any action to put pressure on saudi government internally and internationally i have to underline that internationally because the investigation still underway and ongoing the leading
9:26 am
but lead led by a stumble prosecutor the chief or secures office so again soulfire we have seen request of extradition from the saudi government of fifteen suspects of the murder and again the president add on's wordings on that v. no we know that all relevant to do this murder. will be revealed and we know they are the closest aides to m.p.'s so from that point from that's facts that turkey doesn't seem much to step back or losing him a man of him to put more pressure on saudi government but the international backing needed on the ground now ok m.b.'s of course burma been psalm on the crown prince of saudi arabia will certainly get back in just a moment to what turkey does next right now the robot i want to get an idea of to
9:27 am
the extent you feel the issue has slipped off the agenda of world leaders well i mean. president of the united states' perspective as being a world leader is it took forever to get any traction you know donald trump talked about the situation the whole garon almost that the coverage is. it wasn't good enough and that the saudi officials should be ashamed that they were able to hide any involvement better than they did these other movements by the united states withdrawing you know support for the yemen war i mean that's been going that were going on for years and just now they're interested in having a discussion about u.s. involvement in it then seemed to do with the r.c.l. so saudi arabia you know connecting this back to this journalist murder you know it's becoming a distraction point donald trump doesn't want this to go any further we don't know
9:28 am
what information is going to come out about what the president knew about this when he knew about it so so from united states' perspective there isn't going to be a lot of interest and help in the international community understand what truly happened there the prince could walk up to donald trump into the cia and say yeah i did it myself and i don't know that they would believe him i don't i don't know they want to believe what's happened and so for the international the international community is on their own on this one ok and this i mean do you think it's good that we have more information for the state that is to be revealed will it be with failed so is this more of a case of of being case closed. i think we have to look at the bigger picture here from the perspective that when the turkey was pursuing the shoulder case and putting out these leaks there was a clear intention from turkey to try to come out of isolation to try to convince the u.s. to come onboard to try to convince the u.s.
9:29 am
to abandon one hundred been selma and i think the release of the pastor in the early days was a sign of good world a sign of a gesture but it seems trump disliked the idea that the turkish president of iran was a strong arming him essentially trying to force donald trump to choose between turkey and between saudi arabia trying to force donald trump to abandon one hundred been so many let's remember donald trump in the early days he was saying look guys why my going to give a hundred and ten billion one hundred eighty billion however much it is of contracts for somebody who wasn't even a u.s. citizen so i think with the gusher the case i think it was from the polygamist this was always going to come of the political perspective not necessarily the legal the reason why i say this is because from a legal perspective turkey has to prove that mohammed bin cement gave the order directly over according to the leaks there are a lot of implications definitely that perhaps give more than a reasonable beyond reasonable doubt that mohamed bin stillman knew about it but nothing yet to say that he gave the actual order and that's what's needed in order to prove that mohammed bin cement was involved moreover there is
9:30 am
a very interesting twist in the coverage of the shoji case that actually took place a couple of days ago there is a very interesting article in the washington post that discusses how shocked activities within his last days notably that he was trying to secure funding from the saudis from the qatar foundation trying to set up a think tank trying to find some door back to the government in the sense that we needed this is what we telling the saudis we need this think tank in order to try to disassociate saudi arabia from accusations of terrorism this is a very interesting article to be published at this moment in time because although it doesn't feel like trying to put a stain on her should use memory it's certainly very interesting in that it changes this perspective that has been made the shoghi as an angel as a defender of of freedom of speech and reform in saudi arabia to somebody who. it is still within that framework of operating within that particular world and i think this article is very interesting because it shows a shift in the public attitude towards the case let's remember the only reason it was on the table for so long is because of the turkey leaks because turkey was so
9:31 am
insistent on going after one hundred percent but when you look at the bigger picture no one would be so many got his public hi-fi from vladimir putin when he went to the g. twenty in turkey has come out of isolation trump is now withdrawing from syria and turkey now has the green light to go after the white b.g. in northern syria and there is a definite warming of relations between us and washington and again convince trump when. his suit is superceded john bolton's advice trunk took evidence advice over john bolton's advice with regards to syria in terms of turkey politically it's out of isolation it's got what it wants in syria mohammed bin so learned his reforms have been damaged and again status has gone up in the arab and muslim world. a bit wounded but at the end of the day the reason is this did what i say is this politically the justice is more likely to come politically but not legally legally is much more difficult to prove and i don't know how much turkey has if what it has the definitive proof that mohamed bin solo ordered the order the killing that's plenty of questions being raised there no let's first pick up on sammy's last point
9:32 am
is there any more do you think does the government believe that's going to come out that is to be revealed that will create a direct link between the crown prince because of his murder yes i believe so in terms of that so far we have seen. reaction we received. from the speaking and speech of the pres now gone and foreign minister to wish all of that. turkey has more to prove that m.b.'s is playing a major role actually give the or gave the order of killing so we can we can take that. from the. speech in meeting so as long as her kid knows that the closest aides including qahtani wasn't taking place directly in this into this murder so turkey doesn't go further actually at this point at this
9:33 am
time to directly figuring out the. prince mohammed bin so mun so turkey doesn't want to pretend to be just politically just playing a political revenge but you know why why was holding that information if they do have that direct link and they've been very open about releasing other information in a drip drip method through to local media why they were holding the crucial link so probably turkey. expects more actually more backing from the other countries such as united states from. european union or international institutions such as united nations again since the beginning turkey's repeatedly saying that this trial needs to be held in an international court international institutions so after the trial actually held in istanbul so that should should be
9:34 am
carried out to the international platforms so probably turkey's perspective is perspective from the beginning as it meant maintain up to now is that turkey doesn't want to be just seoul and actually player in this in this whole process ok just playing the political cards as they washington does as other capitals in the europe as. defense will do you also believe that there is still a smoking gun that is withholding in this case and if it is is the u.s. likely to take that bait and give turkey the backing that it wants to release it. well i don't think that there's more information out there from interviews from or interrogations depending on who's doing the questioning and i do think that there are answers out there do you think there's a smoking gun what that what that is i'm not sure there seems to be
9:35 am
a lot of evidence that's been put forward lots of smoking guns that have been uncovered but i think our other guest is is correct that united states is really playing a role here in what gets released what what shouldn't get released because turkey would be on its own and the united states has a vested interest financially and politically possibly even legally in this case we know such connections between jared pushchair and the trump family in saudi officials and business owners as is amazing and great and deep and non lasting so there are lots of motivations here for the you for the united states to keep kind of a lid on this information see if we can we can get this to go away through you know actions with the military maybe. influencing saudi officials to change their own organizations as dave announced in the last day or so and so any smoking guns that
9:36 am
are out there you know the water is going to be dumped on the flames going to be put out doesn't need to be you know so so negative here but this is how the united states operates in terms of its international partnerships and making sure its own interests go forward because we don't know what the smoking gun would actually be pointing at in in how deep the knowledge base to this murder goes by and you know you'd have to know that the white house probably hates that show he was was a u.s. resident not a citizen but a resident if that had been the case just would have been another international journalist killed by a despot someplace and so they're probably just you know ringing their own necks that they have to be involved in this is that how do you think the saudi leadership is viewing the old. this if it does believe that turkey has more information on the one hand but on the other hand it's pretty confident that it's got the backing of the us what does it need to do to move forward i think we have to be the first
9:37 am
point out is that if saudi arabia believed that turkey was bluffing they would never have made all the changes that needed changing the story from he left the embassy to venture he was killed to venture lee he were to to defect he was beaten up that he was dismembered they kept changing their story nor would they have fired syria your god danny or some of these other advisors saudi arabia does believe that turkey has something but they are not sure what and i think this is why there has been extensive lobbying in washington by the likes of netanyahu for example the israeli prime minister who said that saudi should have a pass with regards to the killing of. this is why my pompei or he went to riyadh and he said to him had been said no look we need you to clean this up and here's a suggestion how to do it this is why mohammed bin so many did his top to these we countries egypt beheading u.a.e. and tunisia huge countries that can't really defy him in order to show that he's not isolated politically and when he went to the g. twenty he finally got his high five from putin and that was a stamp of authority that he is now ready to be accepted on the international stage
9:38 am
i think the biggest issue for anyone who's looking for justice for jim of ashaji is the reality of the situation in the region which is that the u.s. sees a moment a vital ally some people say that the relations between us and saudi arabia should be separated from the relation with mohammed bin said man i think this is a superficial view because mohammed bin so man is unlike any other prince before him he is the first prince arab leader to put more pressure on the palestinians the long the israelis he has been an integral part of the deal of the century he's essentially paula to money into donald trump and into do us essentially pleading for their support in order to survive and he's ready to do anything that they tell him in the region in order to implement u.s. interests i think with regard to the u.s. with regard. the pentagon with regards to all of the u.s. institutions one hundred percent man is a rare find he is a very vital ally to u.s. interests and let's also remember that the standards in this region a very different this is a region where sisi opened fire on thousands of protesters killing hundreds in
9:39 am
broad daylight and he was invited to give a speech at the nelson mandela forum at the u.n. general assembly ironic but this is the standards of the region this is a region where libya is a civil war syria is in civil war the standards are very different i think with regards to if we're looking at it from a legal perspective we're not going to get it but politically there has been some movement forward one hundred percent has changed his tone towards turkey in london he was saying they are part of an axis of evil and supporters of extremism at the devil's in the desert for he said nobody can harm saudi turkey relations as long as mohamed bin said man is here and present and again is an anchor he changed his tone towards carter saying qatar has done well economically seemingly ignoring the fact that he is leading a blockade against the qataris one of the segment has made tangible changes as a result of the pressure that he is under but the problem for the turks is this. the foreign minister he said during discussion of the case we are ready to participate in an international investigation france britain and germany gave all the words they said we woke up this investigation but no action was taken the u.n.
9:40 am
welcomed the investigation but no action was taken why because the u.s. does not want action taken out of the shoji case and let's be honest here why should they i mean in the sense that morally ok morally of course they should take action but let's talk in the realities of the world in the realities of the way that they operate journalists are killed all the time in the region why should you be any different repression of human rights is normal in the region why should it be any different violation of human rights is normal in the region why should her shock you be any different this is an america that invaded iraq and afghanistan on the best records you have against last law who is who are so ugly but there was about five minutes left and i want to explore as to whether nor there will actually be an investigation. president obama has said he wants that how far is he willing to push for it. yet it's a hard question to predict actually but we can clearly say that is well aware of that the prominent names of saudi government among the saudi government and among the administration are full in the international public international.
9:41 am
ethics actually on that murder so but i can i can clearly say that turkey doesn't want to portray themselves itself to be stepping back from this investigations. at least first the war immorally so turkey puts the moral moral moral perspective on this case from day one so turkey was the country actually is who the spread the whole information and actually turn back to spin expected spin information flow probably ganda flow from the saudi government from the beginning so turkey went the whole. wrong assumptions about the case or an imminent manipulation so far so as turkey as done dole things in two months from the day one so i don't think that turkey will step
9:42 am
back from this case putting pressure on saddam government and international putting pressure on the u.s. government as much as it can so but again it depends on u.s. administration. maintaining or not maintaining the hypocrisy on this murder because for the sake of the relations of it saudi arabia robot. made it very clear that the u.s. is not it's not its priority anyway to continue investigating or looking at the shoji morally speaking. what about the un is that a body that is willing to pursue an international investigation or is everybody just willing to drop this as well i think the united nations you know has has a couple routes here in terms of a court a court investigation you know a full fledged investigation through the security council or through another entity
9:43 am
within the united nations is probably not going to happen because any sort of legally bound outcomes that would have to have to come from that fact finding certainly i think we're going to see you know some some u.n. fact finders going through some of these documents going through interviews going to these places of the world that we've been we've been talking about to try to understand what's what really happened here but look what are they going to come up with that the u.s. cia hasn't come up with again they don't you know cia likes to say they don't they don't make conclusions they just kind of have information that they provide information or you know we've had the cia we've had the f.b.i. we've had turkey we've had you know all of these different. you know it's these looking into this and and except for those guns whatever they may be which i don't think a u.n. fact finding team is really going to uncover what more do we need more do we need to know here i mean this has been pretty pretty clear and i think even this morning we today we've pretty much outlined some sort of key piece for the moral obligation
9:44 am
and the political obligation to to do something here but the question is what will the united nations actually be able to do from a fact finding investigation or a fact finding effort and i really do think that that the pressure is going to be to the point in the new year that this just this just goes away a slap on the wrist don't do this again ok look the changes that have made her sufficient. just in the last minute we've got. maybe being given a free hand to do this all over again you know they're not given a free hand to do this all over again i think i think this is. case has been a shock we have to understand what we want when we say justice we're not going to get accountability of mohammed bin so much what happened to her but we will see a change in policy we will see warnings taking place we will see some dissenting voices in the u.s. even within the cia who are unhappy with mohamed bin segments rise at the expense of their favorite mohammed bin nayef there is just definitely
9:45 am
a change in policy there are things on the table be considered that weren't before he has changed some of the dynamics i think if we stop being idealistic and perceive this world as a a moral good and just world where everybody is held to accountable for their crimes i think if we move away from this idealistic approach and upon a problem pursue it from a political justice approach we will see a special g. has. done much to change the dynamics in the region has benefited saudi arabia has been harmed by it so i mean if we change our part of it as a bit we will see some sort out of a good reality check indeed many thanks to all of you for joining us for a very interesting discussions they can buy some handy and robert gucci and thank you to very much for watching you can see the program again any time by visiting our website is al-jazeera dot com of a discussion do go to our facebook page that's facebook dot com for slash a.j. inside story you can also join the conversation on twitter our handle is at a.j.
