A Doha Criminal Court has sentenced an Algerian man to 10 years in jail and pay a fine of QR200,000 for illicit drug dealing, local Arabic daily Arrayah reported yesterday.
The convict was caught while trying to sell a piece of hashish to an undercover police agent at Al Mansoura Area. During the investigation, the convict admitted that he had brought a piece of hashish from his home country for his personal use.
However, he cut it into two pieces of 25 and 32 grams and tried to sell one piece at QR2,000 when he was caught. The second piece was also found with him. The lab analysis indicated that he had consumed the drug, the daily added.
