lanka's ousted prime minister tells al-jazeera that democracy is under threat. president says he's convinced the order to kill journalists came directly from the saudi state but he does not believe king salmen was the one who made the order much of type one has written an article for the washington post newspaper a month after her was murdered at the saudi consulate in istanbul joins us live now from there so what are we to make of the turkish president's comments in this in this piece in the in the washington post one month on now from the killing of jim out. well definitely the turkish president staying on the offensive. keeping up the pressure saying that
10:02 am
turkey is not going to let this go until the full truth is revealed and those responsible held to account are to go on saying that he believes the one who ordered the killing it comes from the highest levels of the saudi government he didn't name who he believes was responsible but he did name the person he doesn't believe was involved in that is king sound man and really this is not the first time he mentions king and this is because turkey has been very careful that this crisis is not going to damage the relationship between riyadh and ankara a relationship that was really cordial before this crisis began so are to go on saying that he doesn't believe king sound man but he's also criticizing saudi arabia for not cooperating he mentions the visit of the saudi top prosecutor to istanbul earlier this week a visit that did not produce any tangible results the president again asking the question that has been asked over the past months where is the body of she or at least his his body parts because the chief prosecutor has has said that he believes
10:03 am
she was strangled to death upon his entrance to the consulate and that his body was cut into pieces so erdogan really keeping up the pressure asking saudi arabia for example why aren't you questioning the consul general of the man who is in charge of this mission the man who was inside the consulate when she was killed and we have to remember in the leaks over the past few weeks this is how the consul general was depicted more of a witness than someone who actually played a role so that the president really staying on the offensive and demanding answers from saudi arabia and this time making his demands using the washington post which is of course you are you know addressing the international audience and the fact that the turkish president has not implicated the saudi crown prince. killing him is that perhaps a recognition that he still is still very much in power behind the throne in saudi
10:04 am
arabia. well yes erdogan has not mentioned muhammad been so did the fact the ruler of saudi arabia by name but people who are close to the government house and that fifteen men hit squad well even the washington post's publisher is reiterating the findings and that is members of this hit squad are linked to muhammad bin some men they are members of his personal security detail something that turkey established weeks ago one of them. for example he's seen in photographs with the with the crown prince so there is a belief that you know this murder could not have taken place without the order or at least the knowledge of mohamed bin so a lot of questions still being answered the washington post the publisher even questioning the u.s. administration why aren't you doing enough why aren't you you know hurrying up this process what are these delaying tactics why aren't you punishing saudi arabia because if you don't punish saudi arabia in one way or another you are giving

his to radical rule. through the person. told me to come to turkey was my dear friend for thirty five years he said it's the safest country for me to live in he believes and saw the why the president would never hand over opposition members in return for the deal so i took them as advice it seems turkey is safe for me but it wasn't for him. it's believed that she was murdered in the saudi consulate on october the second because he was a critic of crown prince mohammed bin salmen many arabs who spoke out against those in power and called for democracy and it up living in exile in istanbul this is one of the few districts where egyptians syrians yemenis saudis and libyans settled after escaping harsh crackdowns and repression at home. it was the arab spring in two thousand and eleven that forced many people to leave their countries syrians opposed to president bashar al assad members of egypt's now outlawed muslim

brotherhood group they were forced to leave after the military coup in two thousand and thirteen they found safety in turkey until now. when the dissidents have been threatened with death this presenter live on an egyptian pro-government channel named a minor war as one of those who shouldn't be killed. his friend was killed and along with him the sense of security in what was seen as a safe haven the brutality of the murder a reminder of what can happen when you confront power but she's friends don't believe his death will be wasted. i believe god wanted jamal to achieve in his death what he wanted to achieve in his life which was to end oprah's of rule whether military tribal or religious i think his death will be a turning point in the region to get rid of these regimes. she wasn't alone those who fought for new leadership have found a place in turkey which has been described by some as the last corner of the arab

a christian woman acquitted of blasphemy charges have been called off the government has reached an agreement with conservative muslim groups on wednesday's supreme court overturned the death sentence of bibi who had been on death row on charges of insulting islam kamau hyder reports from the capital islamabad. but said at a standstill jordan schools closed. for three days the protests over the r.c.m.p. b.k. shut down parts of several pakistani cities but i said man the whole city is filled with fear no one is coming out of the situation of unrest mostly roads a quiet not much transport is a violent i said bibi is a pakistani christian woman. did it is a goal after an argument. led them to accuse her of insulting islam this group priem court overturned the conviction this week saying there wasn't
10:10 am
enough evidence but reaction in some quarters was a few. so when he went up. we did not accept the supreme court's one sided verdict at least so we request the supreme court reviews its judge part of it constitutes a larger bench to hear this case again we're focused on here prime minister emraan crown insisted he would an order law what he calls religious hardliners to cripple the country damaged property and fight with police there's goldman has taken a stand and i hope it's just sort of lives that the stand and it takes on and then to takes effective measures to deal with these miscreants and restores laws because people of pakistan who are peace loving they are really fed up with these people who abuse their lives and for their own small neural net. if you sense now
10:11 am
it seems the prime minister has exceeded their decision by the ultra conservative group that it left beg cucolo for street protests before being struck with the government. but it's too soon to judge where did that signal is long term reform of focus on blasphemy law or just a short lived compromise to restore order. come out heidi joins me live now from lima lad so kamau big concession from the government and they effectively reversed the supremes court's judgment where. the supreme court graded reverse a judgment and bargain big decision by the government because the stakes were a high. bank. which has come out very strongly against the black for me laws but all the political parties who are trying to get mileage out of there
10:12 am
because of their strong opposition to iran khan's government they would inflame a treaty language against that milledge against a good day today however on the other hand a country one that's done that and some of the political game who are using that had ammunition against the government and the government had limited choice but to compromise however it will be important to. read the blasphemy law if it gets proven to be told. and what does this tell us about the power that this block of conservatives has in pakistan right now. well it isn't. because you mentioned earlier that. the judgment from the supreme court cleared the prosecutor not have a weak case. on anybody just
10:13 am
a minute accusation and enough to get anybody and so did. martin. laws should be wholeheartedly and it should be in conjunction with principle but it cannot be based on people taking the law into their own hands they did that dangerous precedent president that said bad for the supreme court granted there are a lot of people in pakistan who are deaf by the fact that deeds elements are still active and threatening and undermining the writ of the state to mouth thank you to mao hiding in islamabad. what's more still ahead on al-jazeera when we come back we'll look at the notorious life of mexican drug lord el chapo he goes on trial in the u.s. on monday. and president trump appears to do a u. turn on a threat to shoot undocumented migrants at the u.s. border.
