The Turkish fiancee of murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi mentioned Friday “no one” had the fitting to pardon his murderers after his sons mentioned they “forgive” the killers.
Khashoggi — a royal household insider turned critic — was killed and dismembered on the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October 2018. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was accused of ordering the killing however the kingdom has strongly denied this.
“His ambush and heinous murder does not have a statute of limitations and no one has the right to pardon his killers. I and others will not stop until we get #JusticeForJamal,” Khashoggi’s fiancee Hatice Cengiz tweeted.
“The killers came from Saudi with premeditation to lure, ambush & kill him… We will not pardon the killers nor those who ordered the killing,” she added.
Cengiz was responding to the Washington Post columnist’s son Salah Khashoggi who tweeted earlier Friday that the sons “forgive and pardon those who killed our father” throughout Ramadan, the Muslim month of fasting which ends this weekend.
Analysts consider the announcement may spare the lives of 5 unnamed folks sentenced to loss of life over the homicide in a December courtroom ruling.
Turkish officers say Khashoggi, 59, was strangled and his physique was reduce into items by a 15-man Saudi group inside the dominion’s mission. His stays have by no means been discovered.
