ISTANBUL — The Turkish fiancee of murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi said on Friday “no one” had the right to pardon his murderers after his sons said they “forgive” the killers.
Khashoggi — a royal family insider turned critic — was killed and dismembered at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October 2018. Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was accused of ordering the killing but 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.
Jamal Khashoggi has become an international symbol bigger than any of us, admired and loved. His ambush and heinous murder does not have a statue of limitations and no one has the right to pardon his killers.

“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.
