A young man has been sentenced to three years in jail and a fine of QR400,000 by a Doha Criminal Court for possession, consumption and trading of Fenethylline pills.
Local Arabic daily Arrayah reported yesterday that the Drug Prevention Department of the Ministry of Interior (MoI) received information about the defendant’s activities. Accordingly, an undercover officer contacted the defendant to buy some pills. They agreed to meet at a certain time at Al Murra Area, where the defendant handed the undercover officer a cigarette box containing 20 of the illicit pills in exchange for QR2,500.  
As soon as the delivery was completed, police personnel arrested the defendant. A blood test of the defendant revealed that he had taken such drugs. Besides, he confessed his crimes before the court.

Expat ordered to pay blood money for running over boy
A South African expatriate man has been fined QR10,000 and ordered to pay a blood money of QR200,000 for fatally running over a Yemeni boy while driving through a residential complex at Wukair.
Local Arabic daily Arrayah reported yesterday that the blood money has to be paid by the defendant to the legal inheritors of the boy in collaboration with the insurance company concerned. The court also suspended his driving licence for two months.
The defendant claimed he did not see the boy but heard something hit the car so he stopped and saw the boy under it. Forensic reports affirmed that the boy died due to severe wounds and the motorist was driving his vehicle at a speed not suitable for such a residential place, causing the accident by his reckless driving.
