Saudi Govt Showers Khashoggi's Kids With Money, Houses

Khashoggi, a journalist and columnist for the Washington Post, was killed and dismembered in the Saudi consulate in Turkey six months ago, causing an worldwide uproar. "Such support is part of our custom and culture", the official said. Dismissing the suggestion the family would be obligated to remain silent, he said the payments are "not attached to anything else".

American movie theatre giant AMC Entertainment Holdings is forging ahead with its expansion in Saudi Arabia, its chief executive Adam Aron told Reuters, six months after Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi's killing clouded the future of the kingdom's newly opened cinema market.

Khashoggi's four children have each been gifted homes worth as much as 15 million Saudi riyals (around $4 million), the source said. The other children live in the United States and the luxury are likely to sell houses, writes the "Washington Post". In order to ensure, inter alia, that the family consider continuing with public Statements on the case back. One of them, Salah Khashoggi, met the king and the crown price, along with his own uncle, in a formal greeting orchestrated by the royal family just weeks after the murder.

Saudi Arabia initially said it had no knowledge of Khashoggi's fate but later blamed rogue agents for his death.

Noha did not respond to a request for comment, and Razan could not be reached. Turkish investigators believe that Khashoggi's remains were dissolved in acid and poured down the drain of the Saudi consulate.

"Six months after the extrajudicial execution of Jamal Khashoggi, there are still no real signs of justice or worldwide accountability".

The eldest son, Salah Khashoggi, has stayed in Saudi Arabia. Neither did William Taylor, a Washington lawyer who has represented the family.

Khashoggi was killed on October 2, 2018, at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, where he had gone to retrieve documents he needed for his impending wedding. Khashoggi came to the diplomatic facility to collect paperwork needed to remarry.

Saudi officials have yet to explain what happened to Khashoggi's body.

The Saudi Crown Prince has been accused of planning Khashoggi's killing, but the kingdom has claimed that he was not involved.

The Saudi public prosecutor indicted 11 unnamed individuals in November previous year, and secret court hearings began in January.

Riyadh has maintained that neither bin Salman nor King Salman knew of the operation to target Khashoggi last October. He was temporarily barred from leaving the country following his father's killing.

The Post says it's unclear whether or not the siblings would have to offer forgiveness to their father's killers.

The official said it was an effort by the royal family "to make a wrong right".

But the Khashoggi family members also have felt pressure to refrain from criticizing the rulers of the kingdom, several people close to them have said, driven in part by fear of official retaliation against relatives still inside the kingdom. While his daughters have been outspoken about their father, his sons have remained focused on receiving the maximum financial compensation from the crown prince. "They investigated swiftly and thoroughly, concluding, with high confidence, that the crown prince was indeed behind Khashoggi's killing", the article said, referring to a Central Intelligence Agency report.
