A Doha Criminal Court has handed down a one-year jail term to an expatriate man for attempting to steal a sheep, local Arabic daily Arrayah reported on Friday.
The court ordered that the sentence shall be suspended for three years from the date the verdict becomes final. The defendant is also to be deported.
The case started when the defendant went to a livestock farm on the outskirts of the country and tried to steal a sheep and escape with it. However, as he was carrying the animal on his shoulders, a worker stopped him.
The defendant tried to convince the worker to let him go. He told him that the sheep was from another farm.
The defendant also offered to pay him QR800 if he let him go. Finally he fled.
But the worker called his employer who reported the issue to the police, who arrested the defendant who was trying to escape with the sheep.
