The United States' annual human rights report painted a slightly different picture, accusing agents of the Kingdom of being directly responsible for Khashoggi's death in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last October.
"We urge Saudi Arabia to tell the world which individuals are now on trial on what charge (s)", Altun said, to lay to rest any doubts that may arise about the "sincerity" of the judicial proceedings in the kingdom.
Three dozen Western countries, including all 28 European Union members, called on Saudi Arabia last week to cooperate with a UN-led investigation into the murder of Khashoggi, a critic and Washington Post columnist.
Aiban, speaking before the U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva on Thursday, insisted that his country was taking all the "measures required for us to resolve this heinous crime".
Bandar bin Mohammed Al-Aiban replied simply that the case was "in the courts" in Saudi Arabia when asked by a reporter to respond to calls that the kingdom accept global support in investigating the killing.
Previously, Saudi officials have said 11 people have been indicted in relation to the Khashoggi murder and that five suspects will face the death penalty.
It also criticized Mr.al-Aiban's rejection of any foreign investigation. Turkey urged Saudi Arabia to extradite the perpetrators of the crime, as well as to provide information on the location of Khashoggi's body. More than a month after his death, the Central Intelligence Agency concluded Salman ordered Khashoggi's death.
The Saudi government has rejected key recommendations on critically important human rights problems, including the immediate release of all human rights defenders arbitrarily detained.
On Thursday, Aiban said the suspects had faced three hearings so far in Saudi Arabia with their lawyers present. "Such demands made upon us are tantamount to the worldwide community doubting the integrity of our judicial apparatus and doubting the independence of our judiciary", he said.
While Saudi Arabia has abolished the ban on women driving since its previous review, other government-enforced guardian restrictions remain in place, including on travel outside the country.
