HTP Tusks Saudi Arabia on Jamal Ahmad Khashoggi Murder.

Heal The Planet Global Organisation-HTP is due to seek United Nations Inquiry into the death of Jamal Ahmad Khashoggi (13 October 1958 – 2 October 2018) .

He was a Saudi Arabian journalist, author, and a former general manager and editor-in-chief of Al-Arab News Channel.

He also served as editor for the Saudi Arabian newspaper Al Watan, turning it into a platform for Saudi Arabian progressives.

Khashoggi fled Saudi Arabia in September 2017 and went into self-imposed exile.

He said that the Saudi Arabian government had “banned him from Twitter,” and he later wrote newspaper articles critical of the Saudi government.

Khashoggi had been sharply critical of Saudi Arabia’s crown prince, Mohammad bin Salman, and the country’s king, Salman of Saudi Arabia.

He also opposed the Saudi Arabian-led intervention in Yemen.

Khashoggi was last seen going inside the main entrance of the Saudi consulate in Istanbul at around 1 pm on 2 October 2018, in order to obtain a document that proved he was divorced.

This document would allow him to marry his fiancée, Hatice Cengiz, a Turkish citizen, who waited outside.

As he did not come out after 4 pm, though the working hours of the consulate were until 3:30 pm, his fiancée reported him missing when the consulate closed.

The Saudi government said that he had left the consulate via a back entrance.

The Turkish government said that he was still inside, and his fiancée and friends said that he was missing.

An inspection of the consulate, by both Saudi Arabian and Turkish officials, took place on 15 October. Turkish officials found evidence of “tampering” during the inspection and evidence that supported the belief that Khashoggi had been killed.

Initially, the Saudi Arabian government denied the death and claimed that Khashoggi had left the consulate alive but 18 days later admitted he had died inside during a fistfight.

Eighteen Saudis were arrested, including the team of 15 who had been sent to “confront him”.

The US president and several Republican US senators remain divided as to which, if any economic or other sanctions should be applied to Saudi Arabia in response to the now admitted death of Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate.

Politically, Khashoggi was sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood and Wahhabism.

HTP now wants UN to tusk Saudi Arabia on this brutal murder and that if proven guilty, sanctions be out on the oil rich nation.
