"Hope Fades": Journalist Jamal Khashoggi's Fiancee Asks For Trump's Help

"Although my hope slowly fades away each passing day", Cengiz writes, "I remain confident that Jamal is still alive".

A critic of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Mr Khashoggi was living in self-imposed exile in the USA and writing opinion pieces for the Washington Post before his disappearance.

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud told Bloomberg on Friday that Khashoggi was not in the consulate, and his country is investigating.

Rumors and leaks on Mr Khashoggi's fate are "malicious" and "outrageous" the ambassador said. As shocking as Khashoggi's case is, she said, her overriding concern is that Trump, with his frequent attacks on "the fake news media" in America, "sets the overall tone that the USA doesn't really value press freedom". Those policies all have been seen as initiatives of the crown prince, who also has presided over a roundup of activists and businessmen. The wealthy former government insider had been living in the United States in self-imposed exile.

"The consulate building will be searched in the framework of the investigation", Aksoy said in a written statement.

"We're not leading by example, and so whenever we make condemnations of other country's anti-press behavior, it may seem like hollow words", Ewen said.

The consulate instructed its 28 Turkish employees to take the day off on 2 October, Turkish daily newspaper Hurriyet first reported on Monday night.

Speaking at the White House, he said he did not have details about Khashoggi's disappearance.

The Saudis claim Khashoggi left the consulate unharmed, but also says their security cameras that could have captured the alleged exit weren't working.

"We believe that the murder was premeditated and the body was subsequently moved out of the consulate", the news agency says, citing two Turkish sources. "Such an assassination within the grounds of the Consulate, which is territory under Saudi Arabian jurisdiction, would amount to an extrajudicial execution", said Lynn Maalouf, Amnesty International's Mideast research director.

"That is effectively terminating consular relations between Saudi Arabia on Turkish territory", Professor Saul said.

Khashoggi has been one of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's most prominent critics.

There he wrote opinion pieces for the Washington Post and continued to appear on Arab and Western TV channels.

A still image taken from CCTV video and obtained by TRT World television news network claims to show Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi as he arrives at Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on October 2, 2018.

"If this is true - that the Saudis lured a U.S. resident into their consulate and murdered him - it should represent a fundamental break in our relationship with Saudi Arabia", he tweeted Sunday. Repeating Trump's expression of "concern", Pompeo, who had just returned from a trip to Asia, called on the Saudi government "to support a thorough investigation of Mr. Khashoggi's disappearance and to be transparent about the results of that investigation".

Recall that in June of previous year, several Arab states - including Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and United Arab Emirates (UAE) - broke relations with Qatar and imposed an air, sea and land blockade on Qatar.

He is also a former editor of the Saudi newspaper al-Watan and had worked with Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, a grandson of the first Saudi king who was detained a year ago as part of what the authorities said was an anti-corruption campaign.

"We agree that if there was any truth to the allegations of wrongdoing by the Saudi government it would be devastating to the US-Saudi relationship and there will be a heavy price to be paid - economically and otherwise", Graham tweeted.
