Lawyers ask for release of British editor convicted in Dubai

DUBAI: A British former newspaper editor in Dubai who was convicted of killing his wife with a hammer may see his 15-year sentence significantly reduced and possibly even be freed from prison altogether in a case that has stirred much controversy in this city-state emirate. A hearing in the case of Francis Matthew, sentenced for bludgeoning his wife Jane to death at their home in 2017, was adjourned on Wednesday after he did not appear in court. No reason for his absence was given. (AP)
