Khashoggi murder: Interpol issues red notice for 20 suspects

Head of Saudi Human Rights Commission Bandar Al-Aiban. Asharq Al-Awsat

Bandar Al-Aiban, who heads Saudi Arabia s human rights commission, stressed though that any calls to "internationalise" the investigation "amount to an interference in our domestic affairs".

Saudi Arabia says those responsible for the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi have been brought to justice.

Three dozen Western countries, including all 28 European Union members, called on Saudi Arabia last week to cooperate with a UN-led investigation into the murder of Khashoggi, a critic and Washington Post columnist.

The Red Notice was reportedly issued for the former Saudi Deputy Intelligence Chief Ahmed al Asiri, and Saud al Qahtani, an advisor to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman. He gave no names or other details.

Mr al Aiban rebuffed recommendations made by a number of United Nations countries for steps to, as the UK requested, "ensure [a] comprehensive and transparent investigation", with, as Iceland suggested, "international experts" into the murder. To date, the ongoing trial of 11 individuals for the murder has lacked transparency.

Desperate Housewives' Felicity Huffman released on bail after college bribery arrest
It was unclear how many children benefited from the scheme, though investigators said more parents and coaches may yet be charged. However, until her preliminary hearing, which is scheduled for March 29 in Boston , Huffman is ordered to hand over her passport.

Mr al Aiban's comments formed part of the Saudi response during the UN's periodic review in Geneva, where countries offer recommendations to others to improve their human rights record.

"We find it hard to understand why an official working in the area of human rights would possibly be unsettled by efforts to shed light on all aspects of the Khashoggi murder, which received a global response", Altun said in a statement.

The CIA concluded late past year that bin Salman ordered the journalist's assassination, an accusation that has been echoed by USA senators and other observers. Turkey said Saudi authorities should disclose the names of defendants and the charges they face if it wanted to avoid questions over the "sincerity of judicial proceedings in the kingdom".

Eleven men are on trial in Saudi Arabia, accused of involvement in the killing.

Agnes Callamard, the UN's special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, was in Turkey in late January to probe what happened to the journalist.
