consulate in istanbul in october 28th in his remains were never found calabar calls the murder and in some national crime with credible evidence that saudi crown prince mohammed bin sol man was involved and suggests that his personal assets should be sanctioned saudi arabia's deputy foreign affairs minister has dismissed the reporter's baseless saying their own investigation is continuing saudi prosecutors insist the crown prince had nothing to do with the murder because of all says the crime scenes looked like they were forensically cleaned and that saudi arabia's investigation was not conducted in good faith she's asked the u.n. to launch an international criminal investigation well early agnes kalama told al-jazeera about what she heard on the audio recordings from inside the saudi consulate. the recordings needs to be interpreted they do not tell a very straightforward story. what was done to ease body i cannot deduct.
i have a home and i can infer from the sound that something was done based on the technique or. knowledge of the various people i have consented it is well possible that mr cashel game was 1st put. first injected with something and then that he was actually asphyxiated weezer plastic bag this is the possibility the nature and the extent of the dismemberment of these bodied these i cannot comment upon its not possible allow me to add one thing when at least this was a recording is concerned that i have when mr cashel loses consciousness there is no evidence of the people that are there in the room
attempting to take care of him the 10000 to recitative him attempting to do something that to me points to the fact that the notion that there is an accident that the accident happened that doesn't quite match what i have heard there is nor tempt to to do something and there is no scream so or. any expression of of fear over what's happening do you think that there is anyone to day who knows where the remains of jamal khashoggi are or yes absolutely and who think that he pulled that where in the room the people there disposed of the body. do you know what they are there where 15 individuals involved in that mission. do you think the saudi leadership knows where the remains are i don't know i mean ninoy between b.
i will just make a guess sarah so i really don't want to arm to suggest this is not something i have tried to or determine ok you'll be presenting this column are this report i understand on june 26th to the u.n. human rights council which saudi arabia is a member of what do you think is going to happen what do you hope will happen now that you've released this report you know my report makes a friend of recommendations including to saudi arabia as a special rapporteur i am committed to establishing constructive relationship preserve the governments that i work with i have attempted to work with saudi arabia for the last 6 months have not shown any interest in doing so or my reporting crowds around every comment issues including with regard to the ongoing trial including with regard to step that. take to demonstrate not the
repetition which is upon them and told to mention of their responsibilities given that they have established that the responsibility of the state is involved the turkish president verge of tiber and says those responsible for the murder will pay the price. in the report the un says so these are definitely guilty and they definitely had knowledge about this matter they also see the saudi stance in turkey was wrong pay the price for this they will be held accountable. in the story from istanbul. saudi reaction to the final report issued by the united nations special rapporteur. was expected the government does not seem to be pleased with the chilling details that were presented in a report and also about the fact very implicates saudi officials of the highest level in the murder of the opposite of the other hand the turkish government seems
to be pleased turkish foreign minister. has fully endorsed the content of the report and the need for the perpetrators to be prosecuted as soon as possible turkey seems to be now waiting to see what kind of next step the saudi government will take if the saudis are willing to for further cooperation with the turkish government there could be a new chapter of the saudis decide not to cooperate i think the turkish government is going to press ahead for the need for an international criminal investigation to start as soon as possible and jamal khashoggi fiance had teach a change it spoke to al-jazeera and said the world has been left in the dark about the saudi investigation. when it comes to the comments from shippey and other saudi officials that the un report did not come with anything new i would like to
ask them why they didn't put the perpetrators on public trial and why you didn't hold them accountable why can't the saudis be more open and provide us with details of the investigation and the so-called trial that is happening behind closed doors the un secretary general agrees there needs to be a full transparent investigation into his show g.'s killing but his spokesman says antone good parish doesn't have the authority to launch it himself james space has moved from new york. special rapporteur agnes cullum art says she's not happy with the progress of the saudi investigation she says one of the best courses of action would be through the u.n. secretary general and tonio good terrorist to set up a criminal investigation that's not going to happen though just listen to his official spokes person the secretary general as we've been saying does not have the power or the authority to launch criminal investigations without a mandate from a competent into
a governmental body. the special rough water is an eminent legal expert the secretary general is not a lawyer there are other lawyers who agree with her he has the power to do this what is i sing this is his no one doubts. credentials this is from our. this is the secretary its position this is the secretary general's basis based on what the legal advice can be see the legal advice if there is legal annoys you as you know whether in any institution advice between a secretary person's lawyer. and that person is not going to be shared this is. our position based on the charter the secretary general ban is basing his decision not to act on this the u.n. charter the governing document of this organization but nowhere in here does it say anything about his powers to set up investigations it's relevant not just in this case the secretary general has said there should be an investigation into the
recent tanker attacks in the gulf but again he says he doesn't have the power to set one up well the u.n. report is likely to intensify the division between congress and the trumpet ministration let's go live to hide your castro in washington so heidi why is there this division. well the statement from the u.s. state department that was just released said that the saudi government should continue to ascertain all the facts and hold those responsible for the murder accountable and that if additional facts come to light the u.s. will consider further measures what's left out of this though is the international of knowledge meant of this trial happening in saudi arabia as lacking transparency the 11 defendants are not even named and so it's unclear exactly how these additional facts would come to light and that has lead to frustration which is a continuation of what members of congress have been expressing since the cia
concluded that n.b.s. ordered the killing of jamal khashoggi senator lindsey graham who is a supporter of donald trump has broken with the president on this issue well here's where on that lot of this is classified i've been briefed by the agencies involved there's 0 doubt moment and this was orchestrated by the n.b.a.'s inner circle approved by him done with his knowledge and it's part of the way he does business. and in december senator graham was among those who pushed through a senate resolution that named m.b.'s as responsible for the killing of jamal khashoggi but as far as sanctions go no tangible consequences have been suffered by m.p.'s or saudi arabia over the killing of jamal khashoggi with trump so far still mum in response to the u.n.
reports continuing with the defense of saudi arabia as an important u.s. ally and the relationship based on commerce and military strategy between the 2 nations too valuable in the view of the administration to jeopardize over the killing of this journalist felicity or a time to cast her live in washington d.c. thank you. and still ahead so on the program opposition politicians in hong kong ramp up their pressure calling for a no confidence thanks against the city's leader. hello there the weather is quite quiet for many of us in australia at the moment we are seeing a little bit of showery weather that's making its way towards adelaide at the moment and i think we'll see more showers as we head through the next day i'll say but most.
