The Istanbul Public Prosecution requested the indictment relating to the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside his country’s consulate in Turkey, life imprisonment with hard labor for two people and 5 years for four others.
Reports did not clarify whether the six suspects were among those already being tried in absentia in the Khashoggi murder case before a court in Istanbul.
A Saudi court this month sentenced eight defendants to prison terms ranging from 7 to 20 years in the Khashoggi murder case, four months after the Khashoggi family pardoned his killers, which resulted in the exclusion of previous death sentences.
Khashoggi was last seen in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2, 2018, when he went to collect his marriage papers.
Reports stated that his body was dismembered and removed from the building, and no traces of his remains were found.
