Earlier, US intelligence agencies stated that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman “has ordered the killing of journalist Khashoggi.”
The United States has imposed sanctions on a series of Saudi citizens, but the crown prince has not been involved.
Jamal Khashoggi died in the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul in October 2018.
Initially, the Saudi government denied that he was missing in the embassy.
Some time after the video and audio recording appeared, Saudi Arabia admitted that Khashoggi had “argued with the staff of the consular officer”.

The Saudi Foreign Ministry has repeatedly stated that the Crown Prince has nothing to do with this crime.
In September 2020, the Saudi side announced the final judgment of the personnel involved in the Khashoggi case. Five people were sentenced to 20 years in prison, one was sentenced to 10 years in prison, and two were sentenced to 7 years in prison.
