DOHA: A Filipino expatriate has been sentenced to three years jail for drug peddling in Doha, media reports said.
A Doha Criminal Court also directed him to pay a fine of QR200,000 (PhP2.58 million) and ordered his deportation upon serving the sentence, reported a Qatar-based Arabic daily Arrayah.

The court reportedly found the man guilty of using his accommodation to trade in illicit drugs. It was found that amphetamine was sold from there as well as consumed.

The Drug Prevention Department at the Ministry of Interior learnt about the matter when one of their sources reported the suspicious activities of the defendant in Doha’s Mansoura area, reported Gulf Times.

Accordingly, the undercover source was instructed to approach the defendant. The two parties agreed that the source would buy some drugs from the defendant for a sum of QR950, the report said.

The source then followed the defendant to his apartment at the designated time, to get the drugs. This was when the police raided the place and searched it.

The contraband was found in the house along with some tools. During interrogation, the defendant admitted to owning and circulating drugs, said the news portal.
