The Istanbul court hearing the case of the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi has refused to include the report published by the American intelligence on the Khashoggi operation and the relationship of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to the operation, according to Reporters Without Borders and the media.
Yesterday The Eastern Herald raised questions on the CIA’s infamous report against Prince Mohammed Bin Salman. The report lacks everything essential to a report. This is not the first time that the CIA accused any leader of a state. Earlier Saddam Hussein was also accused by the CIA of possessing chemical and biological weapons. This report against Saddam Hussein brought a furious war against the nation of Iraq and ultimately killing the leader of the independent state, Saddam Hussein. The war disturbed the region in a way that even after more than a decade of this infamous crime guided by the CIA, the region is still trembling with the shocks of war imposed on the peaceful citizens of Iraq.
Khashoggi’s Case in Turkey
Turkish researcher Hatice Cengiz submitted a request to the court to include the CIA report in the list of evidence, while the judge refused to include the report justifying his decision that the report “will not add anything to the trial,” but the judge asked Khadija Cengiz to submit her request directly to the Istanbul Public Prosecutor, according to the organization Reporters Without Borders.
Meanwhile, the official Turkish Anatolia News Agency reported that the court had heard the testimonies of 3 witnesses in the case against 26 people accused of killing Khashoggi, at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, in October 2018.
The court postponed the session to July 8, and ruled that the decisions to bring witnesses whose statements could not be heard should be continued, according to Anadolu Agency.
