Khashoggi fiancee: In Newcastle deal, morals over money

Newcastle takeover: Moral values should prevail, Khashoggi's fiancee says

Newcastle takeover: Moral values should prevail, Khashoggi's fiancee says

Money can not buy everything in the world.

Newcastle owner Mike Ashley expected the takeover to go through two weeks ago and could now be looking for other buyers as the delay drags on.

The Saudi government has been accused of facilitating the theft of Premier League commercial rights, while Amnesty International has criticised the potential deal due to the country's dire human rights record. So the message that will be given to people like the Crown Prince is extremely important.

The chief executive of the Qatar-based TV giant beIN Sport, Yousef al-Obaidly, has written to the chairs of top-flight clubs about the deal, which could see the Magpies bought by a Saudi-backed consortium.

The mooted deal comes against the backdrop of the death of Khashoggi, a Washington Post contributor and U.S. resident who was killed in 2018 while at Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul to obtain paperwork ahead of his wedding to Hatice Cengiz.

Since the crown prince led a coalition that intervened in Yemen's civil war in March 2015, Saudi forces have been accused by a United Nations human rights panel of committing war crimes - as have all other parties to the conflict.

Gareth Bale has been linked with a sensational move to Newcastle United, one that would see him become of the highest-paid players in England, but who are the best-paid players in the Premier League this season? "We are not just talking about the murder of a human being but the efforts to keep all hopes regarding the future, to keep human rights alive, to support justice and to start a transformation in the Middle East", Cengiz said.

Cengiz's lawyer, Rodney Dixon, sent a letter to the league in his client's name saying there were "no limits" to the exploits of the crown prince and his government.

Ms Cengiz said she feared the deal was about far more than football.

"This deal seems to be about buying something".

The new evidence means that any decision to approve the Newcastle takeover by a consortium involving Saudi Arabia's public investment fund, Reuben Brothers and Amanda Staveley - which had been expected within days - is expected to be pushed back. "This is why we want this (deal) to be stopped and not be completed".

"I trust the Premier League and British authorities value their own principles and reputation above this transparent attempt at sportswashing", she added.
