Khashoggi's fiancee awaits answers a year on

At a memorial marking a year since journalist Jamal Khashoggi's murder shocked the world, his fiancee, Cengiz Hatice, still has more questions than answers.

Lucy Fielder reports.

A moment of "unsilence" for journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a year on from a murder that shocked the world.

Which took place here at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Despite a global outcry, Khashoggi's bereaved fiancee still awaits justice with more questions than answers.

The whereabouts of his body, dismembered after he was tortured.

And above all, who ordered Khashoggi's killing, and why?

He was last seen entering the Saudi consulate to get papers for his wedding to Cengiz Hatice.

She waited outside, and waited.

(SOUNDBITE) (Turkish) FIANCEE OF MURDERED SAUDI JOURNALIST JAMAL KHASHOGGI, HATICE CENGIZ, SAYING: "I was not planning to come here again.

This is very hard for me because while I was waiting there, I was dreaming of the beginning of a very different day.

I had no idea today would happen.

When I look back I don't want to remember that day but they always ask me about that day, and the day I don't want to remember is commemorated here.

But I did this for Jamal.

I did this for everything Jamal believed in.

We had to send this message." A U.S. Senate resolution blamed Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

A U.N.

Report has called for him to be investigated.

Bin Salman said last week he bears "ultimate responsibility," but he denies ordering the killing of Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist who had criticized the prince.

"Rogue operatives" did it, is the official Saudi narrative.

The U.N.

expert on extrajudicial executions, Agnes Callamard, was at Wednesday's (October 2) memorial.

She says Bin Salman has tried to distance himself from the perpetrators.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.N.

SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR ON EXTRAJUDICIAL EXECUTIONS, AGNES CALLAMARD, SAYING: "Given the possible implication of the highest level of the state, we need to acknowledge that justice may demand a great deal of political push and commitment and cannot be reliant just on the judiciary system in Saudi Arabia." Eleven people are on trial in Saudi Arabia.

But Callamard wants states to slap sanctions on Bin Salman and his assets abroad unless he can prove he is not responsible.
