The two Norwegians on trial for alleged murder
and espionage in the Democratic Republic of
Congo on Friday heard the councel
for the prosecution ask for a death sentence
times five for the two.
He had earlier demanded a total of US$ 500 billion
in damages from the Norwegian state.
The two, Tjostolv Moland (28) and Joshua French (27),
were detained and jailed in DR Congo earlier
this summer, charged with killing
their driver/translator on May 5th.
Later they were also charged with espionage
for Norway, and for arms smuggling.
The two Norwegians both deny the accusations,
saying the driver was shot in an ambush
by a group of guerillas while driving through
the jungle, while they themselves
were able to escape.
According to reports, the two say they were
in the process of setting up a private
security company in the region.
A verdict is expected sometime next week.
