Khashoggi's family 'forgives' his killers

  • Khashoggi was murdered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and his body dismembered

Two of the alleged architects of the murder - Saud al-Qahtani, a close adviser to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and Ahmed Asiri - were released owing to lack of evidence.

Therefore we the sons of the Martyr's Jamal Khashoggi announce pardoning those who killed our father, seeking reward God almighty.

Khashoggi - a royal family insider turned critic - was killed and dismembered at the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul in October 2018, in a case that tarnished the reputation of de facto ruler Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Analysts believe the announcement could spare the lives of five unnamed people sentenced to death over the murder in a December court ruling.

But Salah, Khashoggi's eldest son, was the only sibling who meant to carry on living in Saudi Arabia, the newspaper said.

A United Nations investigator has predicted Saudi Arabia will eventually release the convicted killers of the Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, after the killers were said to have been forgiven by Khashoggi's sons in a move she said represented the kingdom's "absolute impunity".

He went in to get papers to marry his Turkish fiancee Hatice Cengiz, who was waiting for him outside.

Saudi authorities did not immediately comment on the legal ramifications of the announcement from Salah, who resides in the kingdom and has denied reports of a financial settlement with the government.

The Saudi justice system allows families of victims in some capital cases to grant clemency to convicted killers.

Analyst Nabeel Nowairah also said the family's declaration effectively means the "murderers will not be executed".

Khashoggi's son Salah, who lives in Saudi, posted a statement on Twitter early on Friday saying members of his family had made a decision to forgive the killers.

The December verdict, which was lambasted by rights groups as a travesty of justice, underscored Saudi efforts to draw a line under the crisis as it seeks to reboot its global image ahead of this year's G20 summit in Riyadh.

The prince has denied any involvement in the murder, but has said he took "full responsibility as a leader in Saudi Arabia, especially since it was committed by individuals working for the Saudi government". Three other people were sentenced to jail terms totaling 24 years. The killers, sentenced to death, are still likely to face lengthy prison sentences. His remains have never been found.

Riyadh insists it was a rogue operation, having initially denied that Khashoggi died at all and then claimed that he died accidentally during a brawl.

Khashoggi had been writing for the Washington Post newspaper and living in the U.S. before his death.

The journalist - who had gone into self-imposed exile in the USA in 2017 - went to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October 2018 seeking documents to get married to fiancé Hatice Cengiz.
