Khashoggi’s widow wins political asylum in the United States

Yes, it is true that Khashoggi’s widow, Hatice Cengiz, has won political asylum in the United States. In April 2021, she was granted an indefinite leave to remain in the US by the Department of Homeland Security. Cengiz, who had been living in the UK, moved to the US to accept the asylum offer and become a permanent resident. She was granted legal status in America primarily due to the risks she faces as the widow of a man targeted for his journalism and activism, which were seen as a threat to the government of Saudi Arabia.
