BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – Saudi Arabia will not extradite the 18 suspects wanted by Turkey in connection to the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi on October 2nd.

During his press conference in the Bahraini capital on Saturday morning, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Jubeir said that his Gulf nation will not comply with the demands from the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

“The individuals are Saudi nationals. They’re detained in Saudi Arabia, and the investigation is in Saudi Arabia, and they will be prosecuted in Saudi Arabia,” Jubeir said.

The Saudi Foreign Minister would then criticize the international media’s constant coverage of the Khashoggi murder, which he contends is overblown.

Jubeir would then conclude his speech by claiming Iran has a “vision of darkness” and that Saudi Arabia is the beacon of ‘light’ against the Persian Gulf nation.

Notice how they try to deflect by talking about Iran?

This is good, as the Trumpster with his monosyllabic vocabulary would say. The Divine Universal plan for exposing the House of Saud (Sodomy would be better) for the evil stain on humanity that it represents, is all coming into play. After all, the kingdom is nothing but a castle built of sand in the Arabian desert.

They committed murder in Turkey so should be returned too Turkey but of course they don’t want Turkey too question these men as then the truth would out. I am surprise these people , if they are the ones that went to Turkey or someone else of no worth , are not already running around with no heads. Can’t have anyone say I was holding the phone while MBS listened on the other end as we chopped Khasgoggi up

Some countries have the principle that does not allow citizens to be extradited to be tried abroad.

Turkey is AFAIK among the countries that do not extradite citizens to be tries abroad.

Turkey is AFAIK among the countries that do not extradite citizens to be tries abroad. So I wonder why Erdogan asked KSA to hand over the suspects for a show process in Turkey.

Erdogan is just trying to harm Saudi Arabia’s farce of an image as a “modern” or “progressive” country, as some Westerners are dum b enough to say. Turkish-Saudi relations have been poor for some time. This is a way of gaining the moral high ground over Saudi in the public eye.

Erdogan cannot get the high ground by any means.
