This image taken on October 23, 2018 shows Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman shaking hands with Jamal Khashoggi's son in Riyadh on October 23, 2018.

"It is tragic that it took his death to get the Saudi authorities to grant them the freedom to travel", Slim told AFP.

US President Donald Trump has derided the killing as "one of the worst cover-ups" in history.

Initially Saudi officials claimed Khashoggi had left the diplomatic mission unharmed; however, under Turkish pressure joined by the questions from the global community, it was forced to confess that he had been killed in a premeditated murder.

Shortly after Khashoggi disappeared on October 2 while retrieving a document at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, Turkish authorities said he was the victim of a premeditated killing by 15 Saudi agents sent to Turkey on a mission to permanently silence the journalist, who had been critical of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May both spoke via telephone with King Salman, according to a statement issued by the Saudi Foreign Ministry late Thursday, hours after the European Parliament's resolution passed.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said Saudi officials made "reconnaissance" trips to the forest as well as the city of Yalova a day before Khashoggi was killed.

Callamard said she had concluded that the Saudi government officials who orchestrated Khashoggi's killing were high enough in position to represent the state and that she had no information that they had acted in a completely rogue fashion.

Al-Mojeb did not say whether Saudi investigators had reached the same conclusion.

The young crown prince has denied having knowledge of the alleged assassination mission and on Wednesday promised to bring those responsible to justice.

Salah Khashoggi's departure came after he was photographed on Tuesday with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman during a condolence visit, staring coldly as the pair shook hands.

She said: "Good news for a change: confirming that Jamal Khashoggi's son Salah and his family are finally out of Riyadh and on their way to the United States, travel ban lifted".

King Salman, who has delegated the day-to-day running of Saudi Arabia to the crown prince, on Saturday ordered a restructuring of the general intelligence agency.

The king assured Putin that the Saudi government was determined to hold the guilty parties accountable and to make sure "they receive their punishment". But Sabah, another pro-government newspaper that has published leaks about the case from Turkish officials, said Saudi Arabia had yet to give Turkish authorities permission for a search.
