We have people over in Saudi Arabia now. "It is his actual actions that will condemn him", said Jahshan.
The Turkish President stated that a team of three Saudis arrived in Istanbul on a chartered flight and settled into a hotel on October 1, a day before Khashoggi went missing from the Saudi consulate in Turkey.
A friend of the Khashoggi family, who wishes to remain annoymous, claims that the travel ban was issued as a result of his father's criticism of the government.
On Monday, Turkish media reported that a vehicle was found in the Sultangazi district of Istanbul, which had been there for several days and was not inspected during the search of the entire Saudi consulate's motor transport over the Khashoggi case.
In a heartfelt New York Times piece which ran earlier this month, the doctoral student said the couple had been "cheerful" the morning they travelled to the consulate.
The New Democratic Party asked the prime minister Monday why Canada would arm "one of the world's worst human rights offenders", with the Middle Eastern nation under intense scrutiny over the death of USA -based journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

"There are very important questions about the entire relationship with Saudi Arabia that need to be asked", she said, while declining to comment on arms contracts. And he wants them tried in Turkey.
Authorities were taking statements from five Turkish employees of the Saudi consulate on Monday, NTV said. That being said, independent investigation needs to be carried out.
"The word from President Erdogan this morning that this brutal murder was premeditated, pre-planned days in advance flies in the face of earlier assertions that had been made by the Saudi regime", Pence said.
The sources say President Erdogan has a copy of the Skype audio but is refusing to hand it over to the US. They do not know how he died and where his body was taken.
Critics of the crown prince suspect he ordered the killing or, at least, had knowledge of it - a claim denied by Saudi officials.
Up to 18 Saudi officials have been arrested in connection with the killing, which was also the subject of a cover up when a doppelgänger wearing a fake beard was seen on CCTV coming out of the consulate after the victim walked in.
Bin Salman received a standing ovation when he made an unannounced stop at the conference, and appeared at an afternoon panel next to Jordan's King Abdullah II, but made no public remarks.
Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman, deputy premier and minister of defense, joined global leaders and business influencers from around the world on the first day of Future Investment Initiative (FII) here on Tuesday.
The official said Kushner - like other members of the administration, including Trump - believes Saudi Arabia should suffer some sort of outcome, but said Kushner also believes the U.S. -Saudi relationship "shouldn't be blown up" because of the Khashoggi matter.
