Khashoggi recordings will be released soon, bring down Saudi prince - Yeni Şafak

Turkish sources are set to begin releasing audio recordings of the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi that will ultimately lead to the fall of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, columnist Ibrahim Karagül wrote in the Turkish pro-government Yeni Şafak newspaper on Monday.

International debate about who ordered the killing, including U.S. President Donald Trump's refusal to listen to the recording, has made it necessary to present new evidence, Karagül said, and this week seems the most appropriate time.

The conversations among the murderers and their conversations with Riyadh after committing the murder will prove Prince Mohammed, the kingdom's de facto ruler, was the one who gave the order, and that Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan was a partner.

Saudi Arabia and the Trump administration are trying to cover up the incident, Karagül said, while the U.S.-Israel-Saudi Arabia-UAE axis is negotiating and tampering with evidence in an effort to save the Saudi crown prince. The recordings will undermine these efforts, he said.

"Information of this kind will shake the world, lead to tremors in the region, turn the Saudi palace upside down, and create brand new situations in the region's power structure," said Karagül.
