Khashoggi was brutally murdered at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul last October.

The accused in the killing of Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October a year ago have so far attended three court hearings along with their lawyers, Al-Aiban told the Council.

Turkish authorities requested red notices for 18 suspects on November 15 and for two on December 21 in 2018, the justice ministry said.

Bandar bin Mohammed Al-Aiban replied simply that the case was "in the courts" in Saudi Arabia when asked by a reporter to respond to calls that the kingdom accept global support in investigating the killing.

"Turkey will continue to serve the cause of justice until Jamal Khashoggi's body is found, the local collaborator (s) are identified, and those who ordered the hit are revealed", Altun concluded, once again emphasizing that the incident must be investigated "to the last detail" and "without being politicized". " While not naming any names, he said that 11 Saudi citizens had been indicted for the "heinous crime" previous year".

It also criticized Aiban's rejection of any foreign investigation.

The Saudi government has rejected key recommendations on critically important human rights problems, including the immediate release of all human rights defenders arbitrarily detained.

After countries around the world, including every European Union member nation, encouraged Saudi Arabia to cooperate with an worldwide investigation into the Washington Post journalist's death, Bandar bin Mohammed al-Aiban responded Thursday, saying his country already took care of everything.

The killing has severely strained ties between Turkey and Saudi Arabia, although Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has good ties with the Saudi monarch, King Salman.
