Driver caught selling drugs to students
The Gulf Times reports that Al-Sharq reports that :
The Criminal Court in Doha has sentenced an Asian national working as a limousine driver to 10 years in jail on charges of selling marijuana to students, according to a report in the local daily Al-Sharq.
He has also been ordered to pay a fine of QR200,000 and be deported on completion of the jail term...
...He revealed that he had 12 envelopes in his car containing the substance to be sold to students for a sum of QR6,400 each. He later on disclosed the identities of the other three persons who were his accomplices.
After cross-examination they confessed to their modus operandi. They offered the substance to those who were regularly using their limousines for being dropped and picked up at the universities and schools. They also managed to mingle with students when they threw parties and offered the substance during those occasions, said the officer.
Call me naive but didn't realise this sort of thing went down like this in Doha...
