Jamal Khashoggi (जमाल खशोगी) killing: A court in Saudi Arabia overturned death sentences of five convicts in Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s killing. Five convicts who were earlier sentenced to death are now handed 20-year jail sentences. Three other convicts who were earlier given 24 years of imprisonment are now sentenced to between seven to ten years of jail. Saudi Arabia has not yet disclosed the identity of these eight convicts. This farce trial which took place behind closed doors is being condemned by international media and Human Rights Organizations. United Nations also said that Khashoggi trial lacked transparency and also lacked in assigning honest accountability for the crime.
Jamal Khashoggi, a journalist, was murdered inside the Saudi Arabia consulate in Istanbul on 2 October, 2018. Khashoggi, a critic of Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman (MBS), was living in self-exile. Saudi officials initially denied any knowledge of Khashoggi’s whereabouts. However, amid the compelling evidences of kingdom’s involvement in this murder committed on foreign soil, Saudi officials admitted that Khashoggi was killed in a rogue operation. According to Saudi, Khashoggi was murdered by a team of security agents sent to Istanbul by the Saudi deputy intelligence Chief Ahmad Asiri. Saudi also claimed that the Crown Prince MBS had no knowledge of this assassination plan. Asiri was later acquitted allegedly due to insufficient evidence. Saud al-Qahtani, a senior aide of Crown Prince MBS, was also a strong suspect in this case. However, Qahtani was never charged. Watch this video for more details on Khashoggi’s killing/Khashoggi trial.
