The Saudi embassy clarified that what has been reported in the media is incorrect and that the person who was arrested has nothing to do with the case in question.
The embassy reaffirmed that Saudi Arabia's judiciary has issued verdict against all those who participated in the heinous murder of Jamal Khashoggi
, noting that all of them are currently serving their sentences.
A Saudi official told Reuters: "Media reports suggesting that a person who was implicated in the crime against Saudi citizen Jamal Khashoggi
has been arrested in France are false."
