The local authorities in the American capital, Washington, intend to name the Saudi journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, who was killed in October 2018 at his country’s consulate in Istanbul, on a street in front of the Saudi embassy.
Last Tuesday, the Washington City Council voted unanimously to name a 213-meter-long section of New Hampshire Avenue located between the headquarters of the Kingdom’s embassy and the Watergate complex, after the dissident Saudi journalist.
The council said in a report, “Jamal Khashoggi, through his journalistic work, was a defender of democracy, human rights and the rule of law.”
By naming the street in front of the Saudi Arabian embassy after Jamal Khashoggi, the boycott creates a memorial to him that cannot be covered up or suppressed.
The mayor, Muriel Bowser, is scheduled to sign the text, which is unlikely to meet with any objection in the US Congress, which oversees the legislation of the Washington authorities.
The Saudi embassy did not want to comment on the municipal council’s move in the American capital.
Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist who wrote articles for the “Washington Post” and had been residing in the United States since 2017, known for his criticism of the Saudi leadership, was killed on October 2, 2018, inside his country’s consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, by a special Saudi assassination team, while his body has not yet been found. that have been cut.
A US intelligence report accused the Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, of “issuing an order to liquidate him.”
