Jamal Khashoggi final moments caught on leaked tape recording

 

A transcript of a tape recording of murdered Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s final minutes has been leaked, in which one of the alleged killers is heard calling him a “traitor”.

The 11-minute audio, the contents of which are revealed for the first time, was released on Monday evening by Turkish news website Haberturk.

“Let my hand go. Who do you think you are? Why are you doing this?” the report quotes Khashoggi as saying, as several members of an alleged 15-man “hit squad” accost him as soon as he enters the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Oct 2.

“You traitor! Your day of judgment has come!” a man alleged to be Maher Mutreb, the suspected coordinator of the mission who worked for some time in the kingdom’s embassy in London, is quoted as replying to the Washington Post columnist.

Khashoggi and four members of the squad are heard quarrelling for at least seven minutes before the audio goes quiet. Read more
