A Saudi court has convicted eight people charged in the killing of  Washington Post columnist  Jamal Khashoggi.

The Associated Press (AP) reports that Saudi Arabia’s state television aired few details about the final verdicts issued by the Riyadh Criminal Court against the eight Saudi nationals. – Their names were not made public.

The final court verdict comes after Khashoggi’s sons said in May they had “pardoned” the killers – meaning they would not receive death sentences.

Five of the men earlier had been sentenced to death.

The court ordered a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison for five.

Another received a 10-year sentence, and two others were ordered to serve seven years in prison.

Khashoggi was killed in late 2018 inside the Saudi consulate in Turkey.

The Saudi government called the assassination a “rogue operation”
