Turkey to Probe Reports About Khashoggi Body Possibly Dissolved in Acid - VP

Khashoggi's body parts transported in suitcases: Report

By contrast, a number of American consulting firms working in Saudi Arabia have kept multimillion-dollar contracts in the kingdom despite growing backlash over the murder of Khashoggi, the New York Times reported on Monday.

Turkey's Vice-President Fuat Oktay told state-run Anadolu Agency that such reports needed to be investigated.

A week later Saudi Arabia said the evidence compiled by Turkish investigators actually showed his killing had been "premeditated".

Turkey's allegation of the deployment of a "clean-up" team came after Yasin Aktay, an advisor to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, hinted Friday that the body may even have been destroyed in acid.

The official confirmed a report in the Sabah newspaper saying that chemicals expert Ahmad Abdulaziz al-Janobi and toxicology expert Khaled Yahya al-Zahrani were among a team sent from Saudi Arabia purportedly to investigate the murder last month.

"All persons involved in that crime will be prosecuted", he said, stressing that "the investigation is continuing in line with our domestic laws". Turkish officials and some U.S. lawmakers have said that Crown Prince Mohammed ordered the murder, an allegation that Riyadh has denied.

Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist critical of the Saudi government and its de facto ruler Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, disappeared at the consulate on October 2.

A top Saudi human rights official has reiterated his government's "regret and pain" over the death of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Jamal Khashoggi's sons have appealed to the Turkish and Saudi authorities to find and return their father's body for a family burial, as more details emerged about alleged Saudi attempts to cover up the truth about the dissident journalist's killing.

After highlighting a number of the steps undertaken by the state to assist in the response, Scott turned back to Nelson. Scott is the incumbent governor of Florida but is barred from holding office after his current term due to term limits.

Abdulaziz Almoayyad, a Saudi human rights activist told Al Jazeera from Dublin that due to the worldwide outcry over Khashoggi's murder, Saudi Arabia is now treading more carefully. "I talked about this with the Saudi authorities and I just hope that it will happen soon".

"And all that he's doing is changing Saudi Arabia in a very revolutionary manner - socially, economically, financially, so Saudi Arabia right now is witnessing a huge development and changes", he added.

Saudi officials say they do not know the whereabouts of his body, but that it was dumped with the help of a local collaborator, whose identity they have yet to disclose.

The delegation is presenting a report over the country's efforts to live up to its global human rights obligations, and will respond to questions and comments from countries around the world on its record.

Turkey has requested to be allowed to prosecute 18 suspects, including 15 alleged members of the team of killers, who are now detained in Saudi Arabia.
