A Turkish diplomatic source said investigators would inspect the consulate on Monday afternoon, following delays last week when the two countries agreed to work together to find out what happened to Khashoggi, a critic of the Kingdom's policies.
Khashoggi, a Washington Post contributor and U.S. permanent resident whose writings have been critical of powerful Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, has been missing since entering the country's consulate in Istanbul on Oct 2.

Still, regional traders said speculation the Khashoggi case might deter some inflows of foreign investment - and that a backlash in the US Congress could lead to US sanctions against some Saudi individuals - had triggered panic selling of stocks by some local investors.
The director-general of the global monetary Fund (IMF), Christine Lagarde, said on Saturday "horrified" by the case Khashoggi, but has confirmed his participation at the meeting organized by Riyadh.
