HRW asks Argentina to probe Saudi Crown Prince over Yemen, Khashoggi

Republican Sen. Mike Lee: ‘Next Congress’ Will Likely ‘Look Into’ Motive Behind Trump’s Decision-Making On Saudi Arabia

Khashoggi, a critic of the crown prince, was a Washington Post columnist who lived in Virginia; he was murdered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul by a special team flown in for the job.

Citing judicial sources, Argentine media said it was extremely unlikely that the authorities would take up the case against the crown prince, Saudi Arabia's de facto ruler.

In Tunis, he is expected to hold talks with the country's president and prime minister.

The Crown Prince arrived earlier tonight.

As the investigation into the reported brutal killing seems to be moving at a snail's pace, the Human Rights Watch has now asked Argentina to probe the role of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in the murder.

The Saudi crown prince is expected to arrive on Tuesday as part of a tour of several Arab countries on his first trip overseas since Khashoggi's murder.

Erdogan and Prince Mohammed will attend the G20 meeting in Argentina later this week.

Dozens of protesters gathered in central Tunis on Monday night to protest the prince's arrival Tuesday for talks with the Tunisian president.

Said al-Shahrani noted that Saudi Arabia is ready to emulate the experience of the world leaders in the field of nuclear energy.

Saudi Arabia wants to work more closely with Russian Federation in the fields of nuclear energy and oil, describing it as beneficial for the whole world.

Trump has brushed aside assessments by U.S. intelligence and other experts that the crown prince must have been involved in the high-level operation, and said he would maintain close relations with Saudi Arabia in part because of its oil wealth and its multi-billion-dollar purchases of USA arms. The organization says "many of these attacks ... indicate possible war crimes".

A U.S. official told CNN Friday that there is still is no smoking gun implicating the crown prince directly and the intelligence assessment is ongoing.

On Tuesday, hundreds more demonstrators carried placards reading: "No to polluting revolutionary Tunisia" and: "The murderer is not welcome", in marches organised by youth and women's rights groups.

"Universal jurisdiction cases are an increasingly important part of worldwide efforts to hold those responsible for atrocities accountable, provide justice to victims who have nowhere else to turn, deter future crimes, and help ensure that countries do not become safe havens for human rights abusers", the statement highlighted.

The New York-based rights group filed a submission with an Argentine federal prosecutor on Monday, presenting its public findings on violations of worldwide law during a Riyadh-led military campaign against Yemen and bin Salman's possible complicity in serious allegations of torture and other ill-treatment of Saudi citizens, including Khashoggi.
