Saudi Prince must be punished – Khashoggi’s fiancée

The fiancée of the murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi has called for Saudi Arabia’s crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman to be punished over his killing.

“This will not only bring the justice we have been seeking…. but it could also prevent similar acts recurring,” Hatice Cengiz said in a statement after a US intelligence report found that Crown Prince bin Salman had approved Khashoggi’s murder.

Ms Cengiz mourns the murdered Khashoggi

Khashoggi, a former Saudi royal family insider turned critic, was killed while visiting the Kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, in October 2018 and his body was dismembered.

“It is essential that the crown prince, who ordered the brutal murder of a blameless and innocent person, should be punished without delay,” Ms Cengiz said on Monday.

“If the crown prince is not punished, it will forever… endanger us all and be a stain on our humanity.”

Ms Cengiz, a Turkish academic researcher, made a plea that world leaders distance themselves from the crown prince and impose punishments such as sanctions on Saudi Arabia, the BBC writes.

“Starting with the Biden Administration, it is vital for all world leaders to ask themselves if they are prepared to shake hands with [Prince Mohammed],” she said.

“I urge everyone to put their hands on their hearts and campaign to punish the crown prince,” Ms Cengiz added.
