Qatar Commutes Filipino's Death Sentence to Life in Prison

The death sentence handed to a Filipino in Qatar for spying was reduced on appeal by a Doha court to life imprisonment. Two other sentences of life imprisonment against another pair of defendants, also from the Philippines, were reduced at the same time by Qatar's Court of Appeal to 15 years in jail. All three had been convicted last year on charges of espionage and passing on Qatar military and economic secrets to the Philippines government, reports ABS-CBN News.
