RIYADH, Nov 15 (Reuters) - Saudi public prosecutor said on Thursday a former adviser to the royal court, Saud al-Qahtani, had been due to meet the team that was ordered to repatriate journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was killed after efforts to negotiate his return failed.

Sheikh Saud al-Mojeb said Qahtani had been banned from travelling and remained under investigation, adding that the case has been transferred to court while investigations continue. (Reporting By Stephen Kalin, writing by Nafisa Eltahir Editing by Gareth Jones)
