Turkish prosecutor states Saudis killed journalist Khashoggi
There is also growing speculation of a behind-the-scenes engagement with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan who earlier vowed to reveal the "naked truth" about Khashoggi's killing but has so far failed to produce any smoking gun.
Aktay's statement comes after the first official acknowledgement from the Istanbul chief prosecutor, Irfan Fidan, on Wednesday that Khashoggi's body was "dismembered and destroyed" after his death at the hands of a team of Saudi officials who flew in from Riyadh to kill him. As a result of our efforts, the world has learned that Khashoggi was killed in cold blood by a death squad, and it has been established that his murder was premeditated.
The New York Times, quoting two people familiar with the matter, reported Friday that White House officials knew from an October 9 phone call with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman that he considered Khashoggi a risky Islamist, and therefore knew the Saudi prince had a potential motive for the killing.
"Erdogan clearly seems to believe that he can use the Khashoggi crisis as a way to cut Prince Mohammad bin Salman, and by extension, Saudi Arabia, down to size", Heras added.
"Unfortunately, the Saudi authorities have refused to answer those questions", Erdogan said.
Khashoggi had entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul to collect a document he needed to marry his Turkish fiancee.
It emerged this week that the prince called Khashoggi a "dangerous Islamist" in a phone call with Jared Kushner, the White House adviser and son-in-law to Donald Trump, just before Turkish police said they believed the missing journalist was dead.
The call reportedly took place before Saudi authorities admitted that Khashoggi had been killed in the consulate.
"We know that the perpetrators are among the 18 suspects detained in Saudi Arabia".
After a month of silence, Benjamin Netanyahu has finally spoken out against the murder of the Washington Post columnist who was "disappeared" upon entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2. His invitation for Turkish investigators to Saudi Arabia for more talks about the case felt like a desperate and deliberate stalling tactic. Trump has become a hostage of his own indispensable decisions, not on the level of imposing sanctions on Saudi Arabia, nor in the excessive demand for overthrowing Bin Salman, but rather by calling for an immediate end to the Saudi war in Yemen to counter the consequences of this crime.
For Erdogan, promoting the Muslim Brotherhood - which Saudi Arabia has sought to marginalise in the Arab world and which was ousted from power and brutally repressed in Egypt in 2013 by current President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi - is at the heart of this power struggle.
Saudi Arabia has faced a torrent of global condemnation over the killing of the royal insider-turned-critic. Ankara has repeatedly called for them to be extradited to Turkey for trial.
The Saudi prince has asserted during an interview from his exile in Germany that Mohammad Bin Salman is doomed, and the "Deep State" that stands behind the decisions of the Allegiance Commission has to overthrow Bin Salman immediately, without taking the permission of the stubborn King Salman.
Yasin Aktay, a ruling party adviser to Erdogan, told The Associated Press on Friday that "there can be no other formula" to explain why Khashoggi's remains have not been found a month after he was killed.
