Kasogi's widow urges US to hold Saudi Arabia accountable

Jamal Kasogi's widow on Friday challenged US President Joe Biden's commitment to hold the Saudi kingdom accountable, three years after the assassination of a Saudi journalist that caused a global shock.

To mark the anniversary, Hatice Cengiz went to Washington to take part in a demonstration in front of the royal embassy and overnight near the US Congress, where she unveiled a portrait of Kasogi made from newspaper clippings.

She said she was disappointed that just days before the anniversary, the US presidency's national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, met with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, also known in the US by his initials, MbS.

According to a report by the US intelligence services, which President Biden ordered to be made public in the spring, MbS had “confirmed” the murder of the journalist in 2018 inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
