Lahore, 1st March: The fiancée of slain Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi says that the Saudi Crown Prince should be punished without delay.

Baaghi TV: Hhatice Cengiz, Jamal Khashoggi’s fiancee has called for Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to be punished severely after the report from the US intelligence found he had approved the killing.

As per reports, Khashoggi was a US resident who wrote opinion columns for the Washington Post criticising Saudi policies. he was killed and his body mutilated by a team linked to the crown prince in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

On Friday, a US intelligence report found the de facto prince had approved the killing and Washington imposed sanctions on some of those involved, but not Prince Mohammed himself.

However, the Saudi government has denied any involvement by the crown prince and has rejected the report’s findings.

Hatice Cengiz said on Twitter, “It is essential that the crown prince should be punished without delay. If the crown prince is not punished, it will forever signal that the main culprit can get away with murder which will endanger us all and be a stain on our humanity.”

According to recent reports, on Friday, US President Joe Biden’s administration imposed a visa ban on some Saudis who were believed to be involved in the killing of Jamal Khashoggi and placed sanctions on others that would freeze their assets in the US and ban Americans from dealing with them.

According to reports gathered, on asking why Washington was not putting any sanctions on Prince Mohammed directly, Joe Biden said an announcement would be made on Monday but did not provide details. While an official from the White House suggested no new steps were expected.

Cengiz stated, “Starting with the Biden administration, it is vital for all world leaders to ask themselves if they are prepared to shake hands with a person whose culpability as a murderer has been proven.”
