Doha • A higher criminal court yesterday sentenced a 43-year-old Qatari national to death after he was found guilty of having sexual relations with his daughter, a 14-year-old girl.
Taking a serious view of the offence, the court in its verdict said the convict must face the firing squad. Details of the case presented to the court by the prosecution suggest that the convict's son saw him in the physical act with his minor sister.
As was expected he was immensely shocked but somehow managed to inform his mother. The family immediately decided to report the matter to the police. The father was arrested and interrogated and the case was subsequently forwarded by the prosecution to the criminal court.
The convict was additionally accused of forcing his daughter to have alcohol before the crime. She was found to be under the influence of liquor when the matter was reported to the law enforcement agencies.
