US has done nothing to address Khashoggi murder

Children of slain journalist offered million-dollar houses in Saudi Arabia and monthly payments for death of father

His four children - two sons and two daughters - have each been given houses in Jeddah worth up to $4million each, it has been claimed.

Saudi Arabia is compensating the children of slain journalist Jamal Khashoggi for his murder, The Washington Post reported Monday.

Officials told the Post that the arrangements are part of an effort by the Saudi government to reach a long-term agreement with the Khashoggi family and to ensure they temper their public statements about Khashoggi's death.

Tuesday marked six months since Saudi dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi was brutally killed in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

Of course, the Saudis tried their best to hide their tracks, repeatedly lying about Khashoggi's whereabouts, with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman front and centre of the cover-up. "I want the Da Vinci", he said, referring to a painting by the Renaissance master that the Crown Prince paid $450 million for in 2017.

The CIA concluded in October that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) ordered the assassination of Khashoggi.

The children also stand to be offered other enormous payouts - possibly tens of millions of dollars a piece - as part of a negotiation set to begin when their father's alleged killers go on trial in the coming months, the Washington Post reported. The essay did not address who killed Khashoggi.

Despite his open opposition to Catholic teaching, he has still been allowed to receive Holy Communion at Catholic liturgy. A prominent pro-abortion Catholic politician is being accused of acting inappropriately toward women.

Saudi officials paint the suspected killers as rogue operators who were supposed to bring Khashoggi back to Riyadh alive. Saudi authorities vehemently deny his involvement. The development, if true, comes ahead of an imminent trial of the 11 operatives who have been charged for the murder.

The ultra-conservative kingdom has one of the world s highest execution rates, with those convicted of terrorism, homicide, rape, armed robbery and drug trafficking facing the death penalty.

The newspaper cited current and former Saudi officials as well as members of Khashoggi's family.

"The elephant in the room is the United States's failure to stand up alongside other democratic governments condemning what has happened in the Khashoggi case and demanding the Saudi government be more open and respect global standards of justice", he said referring to US President Donald Trump's support for Saudi Arabia and the crown prince.

The Trump administration, which has fostered close ties with Crown Prince Salman, has declined to accept the US intelligence community's assessment and refused to implicate Salman directly in the murder, drawing sharp rebukes from Congress.

Theatre operator AMC Entertainment Holdings is forging ahead with its expansion in Saudi Arabia, Chief Executive Adam Aron told Reuters, after a journalist's killing six months ago clouded the future of the kingdom's newly opened cinema market.
