Children of a Saudi journalist killed Jamal Hassoggi received homes in the kingdom in millions of dollars and monthly monthly payments in compensation for the murder of their father, according to current and former Saudi officials, as well as people close to seven.
Two Hashoggi sons and two daughters may also receive much higher payouts – perhaps tens of millions of dollars – in the "blood money" negotiations that are expected to begin when the courts over the accused murderers of Hashoggi will end in the future
The previously unpaid payments are part of Saudi Arabia's efforts to reach a long-term agreement with the members of the Hashaggi family, aimed in part. in ensuring that they continue to exercise restraint in their public statements about the murder of their father by the Saudi operatives in Istanbul for six months
Brothers and sisters of Hashoggi abstained from any rigorous critique of the kingdom, even when the death of their father provoked global indignation and widespread condemnation heir of the Saudi throne, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
The delivery of houses and monthly payments of $ 1
A Saudi official named payments in accordance with the country's long-standing practice of providing financial support to victims of violent crime or even natural disasters and rejects the assumption that Hashoggi's family should remain silent. "Such support is part of our customs and culture," the official said. "This is not something else."
In the framework of their preliminary settlement, the children of Hashoggi had each house in Jeddah costing up to $ 4 million per piece. Properties are part of a joint venture, in which Salah Hashoggi, the eldest son, occupies the main structure.
The banker in Jeddah, Salah, is the only brothers of Hashoggi, who intends to continue to live in Saudi Arabia, according to people close to seven. Others live in the United States and are expected to sell their new Saudi real estate.
Salah, who is responsible for financial discussions with the authorities of Saudi Arabia, refused to comment on the case when he got on Monday by phone. His desire to stay in Jiddah with his family has fostered respect for brothers and sisters for power and caution in their public statements over the past six months.
In October, the Saudi government issued photographs of Sala, shaking hands with Muhammad, an image that was intended to show the crown prince of compassion, but he was widely seen as a sign of the coercion force that the royal family committed to the children of Jamal Hashoi
Two daughters of the writer, Noah Khasoggi and Razan Jamal Hashoggi, have published an essay. at The Washington Post last year, in which they described the hopes of their parents for changes in Saudi Arabia, but stressed that he was "not a dissident" and did not blame the crown or other Saudi officials at the perpetrators in his death
does not respond to a request for comment, and Razan can not be reached.
Monthly Schedule of Payments and Prospect of Possible Multi-Billion Calculations  Obviously, Hashoggi gives long-term financial incentives to remain silent even when Saudi Arabia's human rights organizations and critics continue to claim responsibility from the kingdom.
The Washington Post publisher, Fred Ryan, spoke on Monday six months after Jamal. Hashoggi's death, saying that Saudis "have adopted a strategy of evasion," which has "goofy unnecessary officials who are trying to suppress international fury by setting up a fictitious trial."
The second son of Hashoi, Abdullah, declined to comment when it came to Monday. William Taylor, a Washington lawyer representing the seven, also refused to discuss any compensation received by seven.

The CIA came to the conclusion that Mohammed ordered the killing of Hashoggi, but President Trump refused to accept this verdict for a close ally, saying:
Saudi officials strongly denied that Mohammed was involved in describing the murder as a dishonest operation carried out by a team that intended to conquer Hashoggi and return him to Riyadh, but killed him after a fight at a consulate in Istanbul. Hashoggi came to a diplomatic establishment to collect the documents required for a remarriage
in the United States. The intelligence agencies relied partially on eavesdropping equipment provided by the Turkish government in the Saudi consulate and concluded that Hashoggi was strangled or strangled
Saudi officials have not yet explained what happened to Hashoggi's body. It is believed that his killers dismembered and stripped him. Officials who heard the sound of the operation said that one of the Saudi operatives, who has experience in forensic crime, can hear warnings from other operatives to play loud music to mask the sound of an electrical device.
The Saudi government has announced the investigation of 21 people in connection with the assassination of Hashoqi, including Saud al-Kakhtani, a Crown Prince forced labor suspect in an operation against Hashoggi.
Prosecutors are looking for a death penalty for operatives who left
Riyadh to Istanbul and was in the consulate when Hashoggi was killed. These include Maher Mutreb, a former Saudi intelligence colonel who knew Hashoggi when both of them were working in London at the Saudi embassy.
If men are convicted and sentenced to death, the Saudi judicial system can allow members of Hashggi's family to give relief to their father's killers as part of a "blood money" agreement in which they may be entitled to tens of millions dollars
It is unclear whether Hashoggi's children should forgive or release the killers to collect
Former Saudi officials and experts have stated that the royal court and government have incentives to seek such an agreement and avoid a situation where only low-level operatives are executed for their a role in a plot that was developed and organized from a high level
The question of how far to go to protect the inheritance of his father is a source of tension between brothers and sisters of Hashggi, according to people. e close to seven.  Daughters from time to time insisted on being more frank about the life of their father and the ruthlessness of the kingdom, and the brothers focused on maximizing the amount of money that the seven will collect. Hashoggi told advisers working with the family that he wanted to punish the royal court, moving on to one of the crown Prince's valuable things. "I want Da Vinci," he said, referring to the picture of the Renaissance master, that the Crown Prince had paid $ 450 million in 2017.
