Man linked to Saudi prince at con­sulate when writer van­ished

The Myanmar Times - Weekend - - World - OC­TO­BER 19, 2018

A pro-gov­ern­ment Turk­ish news­pa­per has pub­lished sur­veil­lance video im­ages show­ing a man who pre­vi­ously trav­eled with Crown Prince Mo­hammed bin Sal­man’s en­tourage to the United States walk­ing into the Saudi Con­sulate in Is­tan­bul be­fore writer Ja­mal Khashoggi van­ished there.

The Sabah news­pa­per’s re­port on Thurs­day shows the man also later out­side the Saudi con­sul gen­eral’s home, check­ing out of a Turk­ish ho­tel and leav­ing Turkey on Oct. 2.

Im­ages shot by the Hous­ton Chron­i­cle later dis­trib­uted by The As­so­ci­ated Press show the same man was in Prince Mo­hammed’s en­tourage when he vis­ited a Hous­ton sub­di­vi­sion in April to see re­build­ing ef­forts after Hur­ri­cane Har­vey.

The AP couldn’t im­me­di­ately ver­ify the man’s iden­tity. Saudi Ara­bia has not re­sponded to re­peated re­quests for com­ment from the AP over re­cent days, in­clud­ing Thurs­day.
