been able to capitalize on that so it's going to be a very close race both candidates in the last rounds were virtually neck in there and we have the second round runoff because they weren't able to get more than fifty percent of the vote the first time around now what we're hearing is that if mr if i should say when he has promised to bring back members of the former government including you which is. you know former president because really he went into exile after being charged with. use of power if mr saakashvili were to be repatriated to georgia and an opposition party president then that can really inject. turbulence into georgia's political system this vote is being seen really as a vote of confidence in the current government and an important dress rehearsal for

8:22 pm
hello welcome to the program i'm adrian finnegan it's been nearly two months now since the journalist walked into the saudi consulate in istanbul his murder at the hands of a fifteen member hit squad has put saudi arabia under an international spotlight it's an battled crown prince has been accused of ordering the killing is on a tour of regional countries before heading to argentina for the g. twenty summit but turkey wants to make sure the case doesn't disappear from the world's attention its investigators launched a search of two villas outside istanbul on monday they say they're owned by a saudi businessman who's close to the current prince we'll bring in our guest in just a moment but first al-jazeera is tony buckley has more on the turkish investigation . the search centered on a large villa near the town of yellow an hour's drive south of istanbul the forty strong team including police with sniffer dogs security forces and forensic investigators spent all monday at the villa which is said to be owned by
8:23 pm
a rich saudi businessman turkish media reported that he has linked three crown prince mohammed bin from a man. to the saudi king in crown prince could be seen hanging in the hallway. turkish investigators were acting on phone records of calls made from the saudi consulate in istanbul before she was murdered one is said to have been made to the villa by a saudi national he's been named as left tenant colonel mansoor othman abu hussein who was a member of the so-called hit squad which carried out the killing it's thought that colonel abu hussein is in the saudi civil defense force and to serve the crown prince the turkish prosecutor has issued a statement saying the call was made a day before the killing and it was to discuss either how to hide or destroy this because saudis body. the search included the surrounding area and a neighboring villa which is also owned by a saudi national neither of the owners was present fire services drained two wells before the forensic team took away samples. the two main theories about what
8:24 pm
happened to mr because saudis body either it was dismembered and dissolved in acid in the consulate or his remains were taken away in black suitcases purchased by saudi officials on the morning of the murder they were then either disposed all be in turkey or flown to saudi arabia under diplomatic privilege only the killers know the answer and they are in saudi arabia if this search fails to produce any significant evidence about the whereabouts of mystical saudis body it's difficult to see where this investigation goes from here without meaningful saudi cooperation which for some reason it still refusing to give. you might acumen arcus in the queue much saudi authorities are investigating with the perpetrators of the crime they must hundred more to us so that we can investigate them ourselves and know who the local collaborators or collaborators are and who gave the orders to carry out the crimes since all these questions are still unanswered calls from around the
8:25 pm
world and international organizations are getting louder to open an international investigation into this crime that saudi. arabia mohamed bin salman though i'm moving on doing business and seeing friends is his first foreign trip since the murder of jamal khashoggi and the question being asked is if he wasn't the architect of this killing then why is he not finding out who was tony berkeley al-jazeera yell over turkey. let's bring in our guests for today's discussion from istanbul we're joined by professor of history at the university based and from bucharest matthew brice a senior fellow at the atlanta council and a former u.s. ambassador and from lancaster in the u.k. simon maybe on a senior lecturer in international relations at lancaster university welcome gentlemen good to have you with us professor based on let's start with you why is turkey so determined to seek justice for its own courts or through an international
8:26 pm
investigation led by the u.n. and to keep up the pressure on saudi arabia and its crown prince well first of all this. i mean the unfortunate an awful thing had happened in turkish soil actually in walls come up with dylan is stumble law is not the political capital to draw a lot of attention and this gentleman was known to took should ministration i mean because she cheated and he had friends and acquaintances so turkey is determined to follow it up because it's a hideous crime and a lot of details emerging but as far as the turkish public concerned. was invited to the consulate in istanbul and he and to but never came up so all turkey is determined to find out what had happened although all i'm sure
8:27 pm
there are a lot of other details that not has been revealed and but also. that actually they want to find out the truth what had happened all far nothing much progress and all we know is that yesterday or at very close to istanbul on the other side of modern marcy they were searching two villages professor. professing i think there's just more evidence that you have to come to light is that right well that is my guess definitely. so it is may no more because they raided two houses i mean that to begin with in order to start the crime or murder investigation you need to have the bodies somewhere the or at least you should know that what had happened so far i mean in german speaking in the public even international community. we don't have much we can i mean we know some topping some
8:28 pm
recordings except trauma but the rest is anyone's guess so turkey is really determined to find out. matthew ries ambassador will there come a point when turkey has to say ok we've done all we can here for the sake of relations with our allies we've got to put this to bed and move on or is tookie not going to let this go and if so why not well i think as the professor said turkey's preference would be to get to the bottom of this for just reasons of humanity and as a way to also strengthen turkey's reputation so people know turkey is on the side of right but i think there just logically does come an end in the line of the of the detailed information that has been leaked quite skillfully from a diplomatic perspective by the turkish government for the last month or so. there hasn't been any dramatic information released recently and i think that yesterday search of this villa outside is istanbul maybe it is an attempt to get some more
8:29 pm
information that could be useful and the nation in this attempt by turkey to to set the record straight i think turkey is also negotiating a bit with both washington and with riyadh but showing it's had this information and then having some some discussions behind the scenes one of which is about to take place i think between presidents bush and the one at the g. twenty summit in buenos aires president trump you mean. will come into the g twenty meeting in just a few moments some of maybe on line close to what is keys and game here the u.s. president has made it clear as far as he's concerned that the crown prince had nothing to do with the show actually is this something personal between the one and mohamed bin solomon or is it more to do with regional influence. i think there's every possibility that there is a personal dimension to it but i don't think there needs to be a personal dimension i think if you are if you're studying the middle east you're
8:30 pm
studying middle eastern politics one of the first books that you read is called dialogues in arab politics by michael barnett and what by it does is he tells the story of how a certain point certain incidents the actors involved have the opportunity to rework reconceptualized order international relations and i think that's exactly what this moment is what turkey is doing what pres the one is doing is sensing that the affair has given him the opportunity to redefine a relationship between un qatar washington and illiad that has had turkey is the sort of the third player in a relationship that dates back to the one nine hundred fifty s. and i think turkey particularly under at the one is wanting to reassert itself on the regional stage and what i think many and turkey are doing is sensing that this is an opportunity to do that so leaving aside any personal animosity it's an opportunity for turkey. professor around in istanbul can ankara do you think succeed in its demond for an international investigation what what
8:31 pm
needs to happen politically to bring that to fruition. well first of all. he stumbled the capital of a lot of the dissidents from middle east namely from egypt from syria saw turkey is determined to actually make sure that it's a safe place for all these people so therefore from my point of view it's this investigation is very very important but also the deter it in relations turkish sold relations actually had the momentum when the king called mr that on this case saw we raised a lot of hope that the two countries would rebuild their relations and take it further so that also has that amount and also i'm very much hopeful that probably
8:32 pm
just twenty summit that would meet maybe the prince and done probably they will discuss further details and to bring this whole thing into an end but i very much doubt if saudi arabia holds any more details i don't know at this probably they know whereabouts of the body so turkey does y. is going to press ahead until the bottom of it so it's going to keep it in my opinion for for a while from the international community's. attention i guess the browser could foresee circumstances in which saudi arabia could be persuaded to meaningfully cooperate with the the turkey's own investigation or an international un led investigation and if so who do the persuading. well the answer to that question depends entirely on whether or not the crown prince is guilty if he is indeed the one who ordered this then there is no chance no chance in the world
8:33 pm
saudi arabia will cooperate and unless under extreme duress and under conditions that are unforeseeable at this point but to answer the sort of hypothetical question were there to be an international investigation were turkey to keep pressing the case i don't think you could ever see one under u.n. auspices one one that would be approved by the u.n. security council because the u.s. will oppose that and and to tell you the truth russia may oppose such an investigation as well for a number of reasons one being russia is happy to step in and shore up its ties with saudi arabia while the crown prince is feeling vulnerable so i don't think there could be a u.n. investigation whether there could be an investigation into the international court of justice that's another question or maybe other under some other internet.
