Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal in an interview with Fox News on Sunday said he believed Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman would be "vindicated and exonerated" in the wake of a probe into journalist Jamal Khashoggi's murder.
Salah said that charges that his father was a supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood organization were not true.
This is while various reports put the death toll far higher, saying a Saudi-enforced media blackout has prevented proper investigation into the number of fatalities.
"We believe that the two individuals came to Turkey for the sole goal of covering up evidence of Jamal Khashoggi's murder before the Turkish police were allowed to search the premises", a senior Turkish official said, asking not to be named.
"All what we want right now is to bury him in Al-Baqi [cemetery] in Medina [city in western Saudi Arabia] with the rest of his family", Salah said in the interview, released on Monday.
Abdulaziz Almoayyad, a Saudi human rights activist told Al Jazeera from Dublin that due to the worldwide outcry over Khashoggi's murder, Saudi Arabia is now treading more carefully.
The official said the fact that a clean-up team was dispatched suggests that Khashoggi's killing 'was within the knowledge of top Saudi officials'. "I talked about that with the Saudi authorities and I just hope that it happens soon".
His remains have still not been found - and Turkish investigators allege his body was cut up with a bone saw and either disposed of in rural areas outside the city or dissolved in acid in a garage under the nearby consul general's house.
Earlier theories floated that Khashoggi's body was wrapped up in some kind of fabric and given to a local Turkish coconspirator. "This is putting a lot of burden on us - all of us".
"The Saudi government doesn't care about the Saudi people but they care about global relations, they get their weapons from there, they get their support from there", Almoayyad said.
However, he added: "As terrible as this event was, we can not turn our backs on the Saudi people as we work to help them in their continued efforts to reform and modernise their society".
"All persons involved in that crime will be prosecuted", he said, stressing that "the investigation is continuing in line with our domestic laws".
"It's confusing and hard", Abdullah Khashoggi said.
"It's not a normal situation, it's not a normal death at all".
Aiban, who is president of the official Human Rights Commission of Saudi Arabia, said the kingdom was constantly striving to promote and protect human rights "driven by the honourable principles and provisions of Islamic sharia and the traditional values of our society", said. "And I have faith in that".
