Hatice Cengiz arrived in Washington on the third anniversary of her husband’s brutal murder and participated in a protest in front of the Saudi embassy near the US Congress. There, she revealed a life-size image of Hokage, stylized in the form of a newspaper article.
Cengiz expressed his dismay at the fact that Biden’s national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, met Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, whom US intelligence suspected of ordering the killing. Is this the responsibility Biden promised? asked Cengiz at a candlelight demonstration organized by right-wing groups.
“Mohammed bin Salman took Jamal to me and to the whole world. Are you holding him accountable or rewarding these killers?” He asked a question. Khasoggi, born in the United States and residing in Saudi Arabia, was a well-known and outspoken critic of the Saudi leadership and had written regularly for the Washington Post. He was assassinated on October 2, 2018 in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul by a team of agents sent from Saudi Arabia.
The body of the journalist was not found. Saudi Arabia initially denied categorically that it was an assassination involved, but later claimed that the murder was carried out by Saudi agents who acted alone. After a confusing trial in Saudi Arabia, five Saudis were sentenced to death and three were sentenced to prison. The death sentences handed down were later changed.
