Jamal Khashoggi was assassinated in Istanbul by a team of Saudi agents in 2018.

The trial in Turkey of 26 Saudi citizens accused of participating in the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi ended on Thursday.

A Turkish court has said the case will be passed on to Saudi Arabia, which has refused to extradite those suspected of killing and concealing the body of the Saudi journalist from the Washington Post.

Khashoggi was murdered inside the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul in 2018. His death at the hands of Saudi agents sparked global outrage.

Khashoggi’s fiancée Hatice Cengiz said she will continue to fight for justice.
