    Norway Pair Fail in Death Appeal

    A Norwegian and a former British soldier sentenced to death for espionage and murder of a taxi driver in DR Congo have lost their appeal. 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. French, 27, and Moland, 28, were convicted to death by firing squad for murder by a military tribunal on 8 September. They were also charged with espionage and arms smuggling.


    'Miscarriages of justice'

    The ruling drew immediate international protests. Norway condemned the verdict and said it would complain to the government of DR Congo. "Norway is a fundamental opponent of the death penalty, and I will as soon as possible contact the DR Congo foreign minister to relay this message, " said Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere in a statement.

    The human rights group Reprieve claims the two men have suffered a series of miscarriages of justice since their arrest, reported the Press Association news agency. "Today, in the farce that substitutes for military justice in the DRC, the judge wanted to dispense with translators," said Reprieve director Clive Stafford Smith.

    "Apparently Joshua French did not have to understand the process that led to his death sentence," said the director. "The 'legal process' has so far included torturing Joshua, parading him around town in front of lynch mobs, and forcing him to sign statements under threat of death." "Witnesses who testified against the pair received $5,000 each in compensation in a country where people earn about $3-4 a day."

    Mr Stafford Smith ended with a plea to the British government to "redouble its efforts to end this nightmare."


    British roots

    French was born in Norway to a British father and Norwegian mother, and lived in Margate, Kent, as a child. He moved back to Norway when his parents divorced, but returned to the UK aged 20 and served in the British Army. Along with Moland, he has been detained since May this year after the pair's Congolese driver was found shot dead in the north-east of the country.

    Both men deny murdering Abedi Kasongo, 47, maintaining that he was shot and killed when their car was ambushed by gunmen on the road near the city of Kisangani.

    "Witnesses who testified against the pair received $5,000 each in compensation in a country where people earn about $3-4 a day."
    All the trials has been a circus. The Kongo court presented a photography as evidence of a man (neither of the suspects know him) in military uniform pointing at Kongo. More evidence: http://www.pointingatcongo.com/

    First Kongo wanted 1000 billion NOK from us as compensation, but now they want "only" 500 million USD. The widow of the driver will get 750 000 USD, and she gets 200 USD each month from some norwegian christian organisation. The average pay in Kongo i 2-4 USD per day.
    Why the hell would any country in the world want to spy on Kongo? The court even said the two suspects worked directly for the king.

    If our government would have had any balls they would have gotten them home already. If they would have been americans Kongo would never have dared to do this.

    Why not Declare War on the Congo? See if the EU backs you up? They pulled
    s*** on South Africa, so they surely ought to cause havoc economically in the Congo. Watch them have an earthquake or whatever in the Congo and all the softheads will throw money and manpower to help them.

    ROFLMAO When has the leftist liberal government of Norway declared war on anyone but their own people? They will not even admit that the invasion of Afghanistan was a war. This will never happen.

    Who the heck do those Kongo Africans think they are anyway? Using a frame up and bogus espionage story to zap money from the governing house and christlings of Norway. Sitting there in their little jungle military dictatorship. Thats mainly why I say screw the third world and screw Darfur.

    Curator has a point, liberals are liberals whether they worship their so called "human reason" or something else. Whether atheist or humanist or whatever one thing stays the same, their ignoble and cowardly values system, their favoring of parasites in other lands who screw us over their own nation.

    I feel really bad for these two men right now, trust me these types of people have no compassion and no sense of guilt for there wrong doing.
    I doubt they are the ones who murdered this driver.
    I personally know doctors who came to countries like this from the USA to help the sick and wounded of countries like Haiti free of charge.
    How were they thanked? they were thrown in prison under false charges.
    I if they attack doctors and missionaries what will happen to these men
