Hatice Cengiz, the couple of the murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, was today “disappointed with all countries” and international organizations such as the UN or the European Union for not taking “any action” against Saudi Arabia.

According to Cengiz, “everyone should be concerned” about the “null ability or ability to act” of the institutions to impose sanctions on Saudi Arabia, after their partner was killed at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October last year, according to affirmed in a meeting in the club of the foreign press in Rome.

“That nobody has been punished, when we all know what happened, it is really shameful for all mankind,” said Cengiz, a Turkish university student who was going to marry Khashoggi before his death in Turkey.

He also claimed that the murder “is investigated in more depth”, after a UN report in June found evidence that the murder of the journalist and writer, critical of the Saudi regime, had been “premeditated” and orchestrated by “members senior level of the Saudi administration. “

On the target of his criticisms are the G20 summit in Riyadh, the Saudi capital, next year and the celebration of the Italian Super Cup in that same city on the 22nd, facts that she says “promote a country that sponsored a murder of State”.

“The person I loved most in my life was murdered at the embassy in Saudi Arabia, and when I hear that Italy is going to play a game in its territory it breaks my heart,” he said.

In addition, in Saudi Arabia the Spanish Super Cup will be played between January 8 and 12, with the matches that will face Barcelona with Atlético de Madrid and Valencia with Real Madrid.

Kahshoggi, who regularly collaborated with “The Washington Post” and other media, went to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, where he lived, on October 2, 2018 to collect documents to marry Cengiz, but he never left there.

The subsequent investigation showed that 15 people who had traveled from Saudi Arabia to Turkey had executed and then dismembered the journalist, a state crime, according to the UN rapporteur for extrajudicial executions, Agnes Callamard.

Cengiz, who was the last person to see him alive, thanked Germany’s position, which imposed an embargo on the sale of weapons to Saudi Arabia.

Instead, he has strongly criticized the United States, since, according to her, its president “(Donald) Trump is trying to govern the country with his family in the same way that the Saudi monarchy does.”

The student has been invited to Italy to appear before the Senate Human Rights Commission and explain the case of her fiance, and has attended accompanied by the Italian senator, Emma Bonino, member of this commission.

Bonino has asked “not to forget” the case by declaring: “The worst thing we can do for our world is impunity.”
