Saudi Arabia rules out extraditing Khashoggi suspects

Saudi Arabia has ruled out extraditing any suspects in the murder of Journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

It comes after Istanbul's chief prosecutor filed warrants for the arrest of two former senior Saudi officials.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) SAUDI FOREIGN MINISTER, ADEL AL- JUBEIR, SAYING: "With regards to issuing an arrest warrant, we don't extradite our citizens.

I believe Turkey's constitution prohibits the extradition of Turkish citizens." Turkish officials say they have strong suspicion that Saud al-Qahtani, a top aide to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and General Ahmed al-Asiri, who served as deputy head of foreign intelligence, were among the planners in Khashoggi's death.

The Saudi critic was killed in Istanbul's consulate on October 2nd.

Last month the U.S. Treasury slapped sanctions on 17 Saudis for their role in the murder.

It included Qahtani but not Asiri.

The Saudi public prosecutor has said the order to repatriate Khashoggi came from Asiri.

A travel ban has also been imposed on Qahtani.

It's not clear though if the men are currently detained.

Western states are continuing to press the kingdom for a credible investigation.
