“On this blessed night of the blessed month (of #Ramadan), we remember God’s saying: ‘If a person forgives and makes reconciliation, his reward is due from Allah’,” son Salah Khashoggi said in a tweet, Turkish Anadolu Agency (AA) reported.
“Therefore we the sons of martyr Jamal Khashoggi announce we forgive and pardon those who killed our father, seeking reward from God almighty.”
Khashoggi, a columnist for The Washington Post, was killed and dismembered by a group of Saudi operatives shortly after he entered the country’s consulate in Istanbul on Oct 2, 2018.
His body has never been found.
Saudi Arabia announced at the end of last year that five people have been sentenced to death for taking part in Khashoggi’s murder.
