Dubai, Nov 12:
An Indian sentenced to death for killing his Indonesian lover could get a prison term instead if the victim's family accepts a monetary compensation and gives up the right to death penalty.

The Criminal Appeal Court in Ras Al Khaimah emirate has said if the victim's relatives accept the dh 100,000 ($27,224) compensation and give up their right to death penalty, court would commute the capital punishment of the Indian identified as Johny to a prison term.

The court on Friday sent a letter to the Indonesian embassy asking the address and contact numbers of the dead woman's family.

The court demanded that a representative of the victim's family should appear in the court after the Indian appealed against the death sentence and his lawyer requested the court to summon a representative of the victim, Gulf News reported.
