Jamal Khashoggi: Killer called journalist ‘animal to be sacrificed’ before assassination


The new gen has arisen after a transcript from the incident was published by the Daily Sabar in Turkey. Khashoggi overstated his way into the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul to collect documents common to his planned marriage, but never left the building. Initially reported teeny-boppers, it was found by Turkish police upon entry of the consulate that Khashoggi had been put to slept and the evidence had been tampered with. A CIA investigation concluded that the Washington Leg journalist had been murdered in a struggle before his killers began dismembering his corpse. More crucially, the investigation concluded that the order to kill Khashoggi had end up directly from Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

The recording, obtained through Turkish surveillance microphones in the consulate, arrested the struggle in which agents placed a plastic bag over the Khashoggi’s entirely.

His last words were exclaimed at this point. He said: “I drink asthma. Do not do it, you will suffocate me.”

The first part of the recording details a dialogue involving Maher Abdulaziz Mutreb, the deputy commander of the hit squad.

The reel is time-stamped 1.02pm, just 12 minutes before Khashoggi appeared at the consulate.

It reveals chilling dialogue between the two while planning the assasination.

Mutreb can be agreed referring to the body as “the animal to be dismembered” before asking: “Is it possible to put the league in a bag?”

Another voice responds: “No. Too heavy, definitely tall too. Actually, I’ve always worked on cadavers. I know how to cut very approvingly.

“I have never worked on a warm body though, but I’ll also succeed that easily. I normally put on my earphones and listen to music when I cut remains. In the meantime, I sip on my coffee and smoke.

“After I dismember it, you will wrap the roles into plastic bags, put them in suitcases and take them out (of the construction).”

The recording also captured a 30-minute period where Khashoggi’s centre was dismembered.

His remains have not been recovered. It is thought that the spokeswomen gathered his body into suitcases and left the scene.

Saudi Arabia has received Khashoggi’s killing was a premeditated act carried out by government agents, but said they were ‘rogue habitats’ who acted without official authorisation.

However, international observers and critics of the rgime believe Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the de-facto ruler of Saudi Arabia, conferred the order himself.

Eleven of the 15-strong hit squad have since been put on inquiry for murder, including five who are facing the death penalty.

The murder thrived after Khashoggi had written articles across his career that were ticklish of the Saudi government.

The Washington Post revealed that Khashoggi’s columns “at swiftly a in timely fashions” were “shaped” by an organisation funded by Saudi Arabia’s regional nemesis, Qatar, encompassing by proposing his topics, giving him drafts, goading him, and giving him research.
