Heartbroken Fiancee of Murdered Journalist Jamal Khashoggi

In a recent interview with the BBC, Hatice Cengiz, fiancee of murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi, spoke about her heartbreak over Newcastle United’s decision to accept a takeover from Saudi Arabia. She also commented on the current situation in Yemen and how she wants justice for Jamal Khashoggi’s death.

The fiancee of assassinated journalist Jamal Khashoggi has said she is devastated that football giants Newcastle United have accepted a world-record £300m takeover bid from an Arab consortium led by Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

I am Devastated, Hatice Cengiz told the BBC. Just like many other people who love and support football, I too am disappointed with the news of Newcastle United accepting a £300m takeover bid from Saudi Arabia.

We were given the hope that justice will be served for Jamal Khashoggi’s death, but now we see that his death has been used as an excuse to turn a club previously known for its working-class ethics into a front to launder the Crown Prince’s reputation.

Newcastle United is now under the ownership of people who let children starve in Yemen, executed journalists and women’s rights activists, but if this football club has no shame then I guess we as fans must too.

It is not acceptable to use football as a platform for whitewashing the crimes of dictators.

The interview will be broadcast on BBC Radio 5Live’s ‘Drive’ programme at 6pm UK time today.
