Jamal Khashoggi's Killing: Saudi Court's Verdict Receives Backlash
On September 7, Saudi court sentenced eight persons to imprisonment up to 20 years, for Journalist Jamal Khashoggi's murder. The decision came four months after the family pardoned the killers and asked to set aside the capital punishment. However, his fiancée Cengiz condemned the decision saying, "the Saudi authorities are closing the case without the world knowing the truth". UN special rapporteur called it, "Mockery of Justice".
