A Norwegian citizen and
a former British soldier who were
sentenced to death for espionage
and the murder of
a taxi driver in the DRC
have lost their appeal,
notes a BBC News report.

A military tribunal in Kisangani rejected
the plea and ordered them
to pay $500m in damages before
facing the death sentence.

Joshua French, who holds
joint British-Norwegian nationality,
and Tjostolv Moland were also
accused of spying.

Their only remaining option is
to appeal before the Military High Court.

According to the report, the pair
was sentenced to death for
murder by a military tribunal
on 8 September.
