"Terrible mistake". Saudi Arabia tries to convince the world of casual murder of the journalist


However, it is similar, even the most faithful allies of Riyadh don't believe that operation has taken place without the knowledge of the top management of the kingdom of the Photo: Kevin Lamarque/Reuters Saudi Arabia tries to convince the world that the journalist in consulate was killed accidentally. "We want to find out what has occurred, and we want that guilty persons have been made responsible. It is clear, that it is about the terrible mistake aggravated with the fact that there was an attempt to hide the event. It is inadmissible for the authorities of any country" — the head of the Saudi Foreign Ministry Adele al-Dzhubeyra on air of Fox News has said. Apparently, in Riyadh have understood that the version according to which Khashoggi has accidentally died in a certain fight in the territory of the Saudi consulate in Turkey very few people I have convinced. Reaction of most of observers on air of CNN was generalized by the colleague of the died journalist and the editor of The Washington Post Karen Attia: "The idea that Jahmal is the 60-year-old man wearing spectacles whom relatives knew as very gentle and polite person — I have died, ввязавшись in a fight against 15 men, it is just impossible to believe in it. It is a spittle towards common sense". For Riyadh (at least, for one of fractions of elite of the kingdom) Khashoggi is the public enemy. He wrote critiques about reforms of prince Muhammad in one of the most influential newspapers of the world, refused to arrive to the country even for the sake of the documents on a divorce necessary to legalize the relations with the citizen of Turkey. The conditional power block approves the plan: to agree to document transfer in consulate and... to persuade Khashoggi to soften a stand. Detention, cross-questioning, the 60-year-old journalist perishes — for example, heart attack. The question is in the one who will be responsible for it. On the one hand, it is unlikely — and especially about her results — didn't know about operation on the top. With another — at Muhammad bin Salman was — and remains — quite good international reputation: the crown prince undertakes reforms, quite liberal for the monarchy, in the country, besides it is impossible to ignore 10 million barrels of oil a day. Khashoggi argued on a contradiction which forces the West to wait patiently now until Saudi Arabia thinks up rather plausible explanation of the tragedy in a podcast of The Washington Post several months prior to the death: "Saudi Arabia — the last country in the world where edits Sharia. At the end of the last century the king Fahd has created such formula according to which there were two kind of parallel Saudi Arabia at once — religious and liberal. But hasn't worked. Now prince Muhammad has started transformations over again. We pass to so-called Dubai model: social freedom, but not political freedom are less than Islam. When I write about shortcomings of policy of Muhammad, even those who don't agree with me, don't argue with the facts, and say that now it is simple not to tell time about it as it is necessary to support reforms". Intermediate results of the Saudi investigation: nearly two tens people, including the field investigators who have arrived in Turkey and presumably involved in an incident are arrested.
