Jamal Khashoggi was a prominent critic of the Saudi government in Riyadh. He was murdered at the Saudi consulate in Turkey in October 2018. A Saudi Royal guard has now been arrested in the case.
US intelligence agencies concluded in 2018 that the prince likely ordered the killing, a finding reported by news media but never officially released.
Prince Mohammed, the kingdom's de facto ruler, has come under huge international pressure after the US-based writer was killed and dismembered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
'I am extremely angry and unhappy' about the murder of Jamal Khashoggi at Saudi's consulate in Istanbul, US President Donald Trump said.
The expert has said that United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres should launch an international criminal investigation into the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
'Any party exploiting the case politically should stop doing so, and present evidence to the (Saudi) court, which will contribute to achieving justice,' Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said, without directly naming Turkey.
The dissident journalist was dismembered after his murder October 2 in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul but his remains have yet to be found.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will continue to press the Saudis on Khashoggi's murder when he visits Riyadh next week as part of an eight-country tour of the Middle East.
The hearing comes after mounting pressure from international leaders over a fair and transparent trial into Khashoggi's murder that took place in Turkey in October 2018.
Stand-up comedian Hasan Minhaj on Wednesday responded to Netflix's decision of dropping an episode from his special "Patriot Act" in Saudi Arabia, saying the move has piqued the interest of the viewer.
Indian-Muslim origin, American stand-up comic Hasan Minhaj, who specialises in political satire comedy, was recently part of a controversy linked to Saudi Arabia.
Netflix took down an episode of Hasan Minhaj-hosted "Patriot Act" in Saudi Arabia featuring a segment criticising the country's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's alleged involvement in the journalist Jamal Khashoggi murder case.
'It's natural for people to try and associate any developments with the Khashoggi tragedy but its difficult to see any of these specific changes as resulting specifically from that', tweeted Ali Shihabi, head of The Arabia Foundation.
Jamal Khashoggi was killed at the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on October 2 leading to widespread international condemnation.
Khashoggi, a trenchant critic of the crown prince who relocated to Virginia and wrote op-eds for the Washington Post, was killed by Saudi operatives inside the kingdom's Istanbul consulate on October 2, triggering global condemnation.
Khashoggi was killed in what U.S. officials have described as an elaborate plot at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, which he had visited for marriage paperwork.
