Are SQLScript and HANA SQL turing complete?


In a forum, I read that SQL92 is not turing complete, however languages like T-SQL and PL/SQL are (unfortunately there is no evidence given).

So I was wondering: is SQLScript also turing complete? Intuitively, I would argue for yes. However, I haven't found any evidence or formal proof for that.

Another thought is, that SQLScript extends HANA SQL, so if HANA SQL was turing complete, I'd assume that SQLScript is, too.

Can anyone confirm of reject this with a good explanation and (if possible) an evidence?
