killing a hundred eighty nine people. a breakthrough in the treatment of spinal injuries that could help patients walk again. hello we begin with the ongoing political crisis and the newly appointed prime minister mahinda rajapaksa has told al jazeera his appointment is legitimate and he's getting on with business he was controversially appointed a week ago after the president fired run away from a single who claims he still enjoys the majority parliaments will now reconvene next week so m.p.'s can vote to decide who has the mandate to rule that smith has more from colombo. bendo rajapaksa turned up for work this morning at the prime minister's office confident of his position despite the controversial nature of his appointment as prime minister controversial because the president is accused of
12:02 pm
going over the head of polman rajapaksa says he can prove in parliament he's got the support he needs your of a lot of the legitimate you think serve us it's the institution that is perfect the argument is that parliament should be deciding who's the prime minister not normally. read the institution of the new training and so you're immediately for a no you're assuming the prime minister is position to be given the order of the book how will you get enough support from parliament how do you get the m.p.'s we have got the other entity sure and so why the delay in recalling parliament what are we hanging on for because we want to. get ready for the i did but to go much as a way down the road of the prime minister's official residence run away from a single is refusing to move because he says he is still prime minister he says but only parliament can decide who is the prime minister because of
12:03 pm
a constitutional change a couple of years ago that took power away from the president and was supposed to make the supremes so what promising us as until parliament votes he is still prime minister parliament it seems might eventually get a say when it's recalled next week and m.p.'s are allowed to vote now turkey has officially revealed the gruesome details of what exactly happened to the saudi journalist and critics. turkey's chief prosecutor says he was strangled to death as soon as he entered the saudi consulate in istanbul on the second the. saudi arabia is yet to respond to the revelations are somehow better has the latest. as a saudi chief prosecutor was on his way to travel back to his country his turkish counterpart released a statement detailing. the final moments of the saga consulate. according to the horrifying account hoxsey was strangled to death as soon as he got
12:04 pm
into the consulate on the second of october his body dismembered and the blast remains shrouded in mystery turkish investigators are still trying to find out what happened to the remains of her shockey who gave the order to kill him and the identity of the local cooperated tasked with disposing of the body in fanfic dan turkey's chief prosecutor also sat his counterparts. wasn't fully cooperating turkey blames saudi arabia for stalling the investigation. this is not an event that can be done without an order from a high level the organization of this event has been premeditated at the saudi chief prosecutor stated and it has been done in such a brutal way as declared by our own chief prosecutor as well he was killed as soon
12:05 pm
as he entered and was later dismembered how far in advance has his brutal his advantage been planned and who gave the order we are in a position to see this clearly from the start we haven't accused anyone but we will not allow a cover up it will not human. saudi officials initially denied the outspoken journalist was killed but backtracked and international pressure admitting it was premeditated the kingdom insists crown prince mohammed bin selman had no knowledge of g.'s fate turkey seems determined to press ahead with his own investigation the wording of the general prosecutor's statement suggests officials here are confident they have enough strong evidence about what happened when and to the subject consulate in istanbul about a month ago about al-jazeera is somebody and let's cross over to istanbul and switches and i heard that there are so why do we think that the prosecutor in istanbul has revealed these details now and shortly after the saudi prosecutor had
12:06 pm
left istanbul. clearly it was an attempt to put more pressure on saudi arabia turkish officials increasingly frustrated with the level of cooperation coming from the saudi side it's been a month since she was killed inside that consulate for the first time we're hearing details about the murder from an official source on the record and not just any source it's the prosecutor himself the man investigating the case is the chief prosecutor the man who sat down and held two meetings with saudi arabia's top prosecutor meetings according to the prosecutor did not you know the outcome really no food full outcome no tangible outcome so saudi arabia increasingly frustrated what the prosecutor has said is that she was strangled to death he was strangled immediately after he entered the consulate and his body was cut into pieces now
12:07 pm
this of course dismisses saudi arabia's narrative which was these saudi agents came to try to convince about to return to saudi arabia and there was a fistfight and there was an argument and he was accidentally killed so this narrative dismissing that narrative but the biggest question remains where are the body parts of the mouth which actually this is a question turkey has repeatedly asked saudi arabia in recent weeks and it is a question is samples tough prosecutor asked saudi arabia chief prosecutor and still no answer so when turkey says that the talks produce no concrete results then what does this mean for the supposed joint investigation going forward and its turkey going to cooperate in the investigation that's currently going on and carried out in saudi arabia. well there are two investigations that joint investigation that you mentioned but of course you also have the turkish led investigation we still have not heard from the top prosecutor
12:08 pm
here in istanbul on whether or not he's going to accept that invitation to go to riyadh turkey really isn't a difficult position because. if they refuse to go to riyadh it will look like you know turkey doesn't want to cooperate and if it does go then it gives credit to saudi arabia that investigation is moving forward smoothly we heard even the president himself heard the gun say that illogical obstacles are being put in the in the way of the investigation to save somebody he also said that the game is being played to try to protect somebody who didn't go as far as to name that person but a columnist in a pro-government media actually named that person and he said it's a de facto ruler of saudi arabia crown prince mohammed bin salamat so a lot of frustration in turkey they want those suspects extradited they have clearly no faith in the saudi judicial process they want them extradited so that they face trial here in front of the whole world turkey promising an independent and impartial trial but so far saudi arabia is refusing to hand over the suspects
12:09 pm
