Khashoggi, a critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was killed at the kingdom’s Istanbul consulate by a team sent from Riyadh. Saudi authorities have acknowledged that the killing was premeditated, but his body has not been found.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said audio recordings of the killing had been given to the US, French, German and British governments. Asked on a visit to Paris whether Canadian intelligence had heard the Turkish recordings, Trudeau said, “Yes”, adding that he had not heard them personally.
“Canada has been fully briefed on what Turkey had to share,” he said.
Trudeau said he had also spoken to Erdogan about the issue in Paris.
