Son of late journalist Jamal Khashoggi in a statement on twitter said that the family has ‘forgiven’ the killers of their father. Salah Khashoggi according to reports stays in Jeddah.

Jamal Khashoggi, a columnist with Washington Post, considered a Saudi dissident, was allegedly killed at the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul in October 2018. Saudi officials said that it was a ‘rogue operation’. A Saudi Arabian court in December 2019 awarded death penalty to five people and 24 years of jail to three others.
Death sentences can be commuted if the victim of the family grants pardon under the Islamic law. The family can choose to pardon the perpetrator for any reason they see fit and pardons are given for a variety of reasons. However, it does not absolve the perpetrator of his crime.
