The Philippine government is trying to save the life of a Filipino on death row in Qatar.

That Filipino is an employee of a state-owned company and has been sentenced to death for selling state secrets.

Two other Filipinos who work as technicians at a Qatari military base were given life sentences for the same offense.

The Foreign Affairs Department says, their relatives have been informed and the Philippine Embassy in Qatar is already extending legal assistance to the three Filipinos. —ANC World Tonight, May 24, 2014
