Khashoggi’s widow wins political asylum in the United States
Yes, according to Reuters, the widow of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Hatice Cengiz, has been granted political asylum in the United States. Cengiz is a Turkish national who was granted asylum on the basis of her well-founded fear of persecution in her home country. The asylum claim was reportedly based on her connection to the 2018 murder of her husband, for which the Saudi government has been held responsible. Cengiz expressed her gratitude for the generosity of the United States in granting her asylum, and renewed her call to hold those responsible for her husband’s death accountable.
