Qatar News Indian Navy: India affirmed on Thursday that the appeal process is underway against the death sentences given to eight former Indian Navy personnel by a Qatari court. External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi expressed hope for a positive outcome, emphasizing ongoing engagement with Qatari authorities and the provision of legal and consular assistance to the individuals.

Death sentence issued:

The death sentences, issued on October 26, prompted India to explore all legal options, leading to the subsequent filing of an appeal. Bagchi urged against speculation due to the case’s sensitivity and clarified that reports suggesting the appeal’s adjudication were “factually incorrect.”

“The case is currently in a legal process there. As we mentioned, an appeal has been filed in Qatar’s Court of Appeal. We are also engaged with the Qatari authorities on the matter and we will continue to extend all legal and consular assistance (to them),” Bagchi said.

The appeal process is underway:

“I would again urge everyone not to engage in speculation considering the sensitive nature of the case,” he said. “The appeal process is underway and we would hope for a positive outcome,” replying to a question Bagchi said on matter at his weekly media briefing.

The charges against the navy veterans, arrested in August the previous year on alleged espionage grounds, were filed on March 25 under Qatari law. The Ministry of External Affairs underscored the case’s high importance, emphasizing the unblemished military careers of the individuals, who held significant positions in the Indian Navy. The appeal process remains confidential, with India expressing optimism for a positive outcome.
