Saudi Arabia has now provided each of the four children of Jamal Khashoggi with a house in the family's home city of Jiddah worth about million in addition to a steady stream of cash payments of, 000 to, 000 a month, according to the people familiar with the arrangement. In lieu of death for a murder committed, the guilty party can compensate the aggrieved party.
Abdullah Khashoggi, one of the columnist's sons, apparently said, "I want the da Vinci", referencing a painting the crown prince paid a large sum for in 2017.
The family could receive further payments of as much as 100 to 200 million riyals ($26.7- $53.3 million) as part of blood money negotiations that might be expected when the trial concludes, CNN's source said.
At a time when politicians, media outlets, and human rights organisations in many countries continue pressing on the Khashoggi file, the entire saga has severely damaged MBS' reputation in the West. The essay did not address who killed Khashoggi.
Saudi Arabia has put 11 people on trial for Khashoggi's murder but the proceedings are taking place in a secret court and it remains unclear who the defendants are and what charges they are facing.

"We need to put more emphasis on people who can lead a team, who can sell a vision, who can lead a country, inspire a nation". Martin Hewitt, chairman of the National Police Chiefs' Council, said the mood was "incredibly febrile".

Republicans argued the committee should wait to see a partial release of the report expected from Barr later in April. The committee rejected a GOP amendment that would have blocked the subpoenas from applying to grand jury information.
"Washington Post" publisher Fred Ryan issued a statement on Monday, six months after Mr Khashoggi's death, saying the Saudis "have adopted a strategy of evasion" that has "scapegoated expendable officials, seeking to quell global furore by staging a sham trial".
"Given the lack of transparency from the Saudi authorities and in the absence of an independent judiciary, an worldwide, independent and impartial investigation is the only way to avoid a whitewash of this grave crime". In February, he refused to provide the US Congress with a report determining who killed Khashoggi. They also deny that the crown prince was ever involved. Moreover, with virtually all Democratic presidential hopefuls expressing outrage over Khashoggi's killing and issuing strong rhetoric against MBS, as well as the cover that Trump has provided him since October, the possibility of Trump losing his re-election bid next year must truly unsettle the millennial prince.
The kingdom is trying to come to a long-term understanding with the Khashoggi family members to encourage them to continue to refrain from criticism in relation to their father's killing by Saudi agents, the paper reported on Monday.
Aidan White, director of the US-based Ethical Journalism Network, described the initial payments to Khashoggi's children as one of a "variety of methods by Saudi Arabia to avoid taking responsibility" for his murder. The crown prince is the next in line to the Saudi throne after his ailing father King Salman, and has become the de facto ruler of Saudi Arabia.
