The Saudi Attorney General declared on Thursday that the murder of citizen Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul was premeditated, reported the Saudi Press Agency.

It made the announcement based on the preliminary findings of a probe carried out by the Public Prosecution and revealed on October 10.

It is also based on information received from Turkey through the Joint Working Team established between Riyadh and Ankara.

The suspects committed their crime with a premeditated intention, said the Attorney General.

The Public Prosecution will continue its investigations with the accused in the light of the new revelations and the results of its investigations to reach facts and complete the course of justice.
