4:34 am
from so they are bia to the entire nation airport of other took and 15 men. checked in a hotel in the istanbul and before. arrived to course late they had to meet their car with the fuel that in all that you can not see inside the fact that the team arrived in turkey the circumstances of what they actually did the timing is concerned and also the composition of those people in terms of their forensic expertise that ranking one at least is alleged to be a very senior ranking intelligence officer and the fact that it's also claimed that at least 7 of that team are extremely close in terms of the security in a circle of the crown prince himself all of this is very strong circumstantial
4:35 am
evidence it all suggests that not only were these people implicated in the whatever out has happened. it also suggests that what the intention actually was. at 1 14 pm surveillance cameras showed to market share entering the consulate he gave the teacher his mobile phone and left her waiting for him outside. for anything but 4 in the afternoon shogi had still not emerged a teacher jane just contacted us seen act and tour and. thought would stand for what was done for ma at the going to be at $330.00 pm i started asking myself why tomar hadn't come out we're all going to be talking for a while i got up and started walking around because he me either because i was checking the cars coming out of the consulate and trying to understand what was happening why it's always to me on ignore your job like i never thought that
4:36 am
anything bad would happen or that anything like that could happen. or were considered by or not thought of dr mitchell article but i felt that something had gone wrong and started thinking about what to do you know i went to the entrance and said that i was waiting for jamal who hadn't come out yet to watch the officers said that there was no one inside everyone had left them or what i asked myself what i should do i found the consulate's phone number and called them up i said i was 2 miles fiance and i was waiting at the entrance but that he had gone inside to not come out. the officer hung up the phone and came to the door to give them each one of a kind of shameful for a couple that became a that he said there's no one inside there's no point wasting for it i can feel. my legs started trembling and i thought about calling mr you're seen in my arms to me i was so there were i could we also move a little bit. you marcus she said she was jamal khashoggi
4:37 am
so beyond saying all do so i asked what had happened thank you because of the good those moments on. she said jamal had into the consulate 5 hours earlier and still hadn't come out and that's when i knew there was a serious problem by the. queue i wasn't aware of how dangerous it might be the focus should be to go into the consulate. i told her teacher to wait until i made some calls. i called the chief of general intelligence i can feed on the ship then i called the president's office and i told some of jamal's friends about what had happened. after about 3 and a half hours of work on the part of the intelligence agency it became clear that jamal khashoggi had disappeared. and i have.
4:38 am
as international speculation about his fate grew one theory was that he had been kidnapped as part of an illegal operation to take him back to saudi arabia the british daily the guardian expressed concern that could show he might have been detained smuggled out of the saudi consulate in istanbul in a diplomatic vehicle and then transferred back to saudi arabia. according to be from ocean we have this isn't you still in the cod arriving consulate in istanbul we don't have any information besides the statements by the turkish presidential spokesman was made or not told that the 3rd the day after the failed to emerge from the saudi consulate 4 days later president said that turkish prosecutors were conducting an extensive investigation looking into all camera records and monitoring incoming and outgoing airport transits he added that he
4:39 am
still hoped for a positive outcome. meanwhile the turkish foreign ministry had summoned the saudi ambassador to. mandan clarification on october the force. that resulted in the 1st official statement by the saudi consulate general in istanbul on twitter it said that the consulate was following up on media reports about the disappearance of the saudi citizen and journalist to marcus shogi after he left the saudi consulate in istanbul it also said it was coordinating with turkish authorities to quote uncover the facts behind his going missing after exiting. in a wide ranging interview with bloomberg news agency just a day after disappearance of crown prince mohammed bin salman said my understanding is he entered and he got out after a few minutes or an hour the crown prince also stated that he was not inside the
4:40 am
consulate and he added if he were in saudi arabia i would know that. all of that we kept going to the consulate for the 1st 3 days. we waste it from morning to evening because we thought your mole was inside. then saudi arabia released a statement saying that jamal had left a while after entering the my gosh. this was during the 1st week. then i stopped going there as i believe that jamal was no longer in the concert and i thought they'd taken him to saudi arabia or somewhere else the other was critical to. the very 1st beginning of the iran has been happen. or couldn't the senate on the us kingdom was. clearly sure that he has left because late all the responsibilities
4:41 am
belong to the authorities and. you know that. their social made the. army started to provide ground. to secure future has that because this is a very detailed plan and action off the intelligence agencies they are trying to see. the other such from the ridiculous story fabricated stories. the 1st report that had been killed surfaced 5 days after his disappearance reuters news agency quoted a turkish official who said the initial assessment by turkish police was that he had been murdered at the consulate and his body flown out of the country. to saudi consulate issued a denial saying that jamal khashoggi was neither inside the consulate nor in saudi
4:42 am
arabia. it also tonight that he had been killed in the consulate and said every effort was being made to find him. on october the 6th the saudi consulate in istanbul mohammed. invited reporters through reuters to the consulate and accompanied them on a tour to confirm that he showed he was not inside the building the. konsole denied reports of an assassination he insisted pushes he had left the building but said he could not prove it because the consulate surveillance cameras did not save images. that something is going wrong because someone is missing new york. you have to prove that he ran of the media or of course but why you would have a c.c.t.v. system that isn't working doesn't record seems. impossible to believe the only
4:43 am
reason why you would not have a recording system is lack of money and this isn't something that afflicts saudi arabia for sure. on monday october the 8th u.s. president donald trump issued his 1st public statement of the case at the same time the saudi ambassador to the u.s. prince colleague bin spillman bin have stated publicly that allegations claiming showed he had been killed or detained by the saudi authorities were completely false and unfounded. he then left for saudi arabia on the pretext of seeking clarification. for the king of saudi arabia. he didn't really know maybe i don't want to get it but it sounds to me like a good thing. from the photos they.
4:44 am
wanted to give them i wouldn't say of course we know just formed by and of themselves and we know that from start to speaking about the role in humans before even the saudi government give up with this technology so he wanted to give them the exit therefore they can use it nordoff to cover. this unfortunately was all stations. i received an invitation from president trump a few weeks after the incident invited me to the united states. i didn't see it as a positive test i saw it as a political trick to get the public opinion on his side of the what are the united states should have done something to find out what really happened.
4:45 am
on october the 8th the turkish daily guinea shelf that crippled the intelligence services were analyzing the movement of 26 cars owned by the saudi consulate in istanbul. it said they wanted to determine their whereabouts on the day jamal khashoggi went missing. c.c.t.v. cameras close to the saudi consulate showed 2 cars. with the license number 34 c.c. 186 fine and another miss sadie's with the license number 34 c c 2248 driving to the saudi consuls house an hour and 15 minutes after the had entered the consulate. they were parked in the garrett.
