Dolma’s death sentence appealed
Saudi Arabia based Nepali mission said on Monday that incarcerated Dolma Sherpa who has been slapped with a death sentence for alleged murder has appealed against the verdict in an appellate court of Kuwait.
"She has appealed to the appellate court against the verdict of a lower court," said Prakash Kumar Subedi, deputy chief of mission.
The mission had deputed Lok Bahadur Thapa, first secretary, last week to Kuwait to find out facts about plight of Dolma, who has been languishing in Shamiya central jail of Kuwait.
According to Subedi, Thapa met Dolma, Kuwaiti officials, rights activists, officials at Kuwait based Embassy of the Philippines and lawyers who are following the case.
