Autopsy Done on Filipino Fire Victims in Qatar

DOHA: The Philippine embassy in Doha is in direct contact, and co-ordinating with Qatar authorities for documents needed to repatriate the bodies of the three Filipinos who perished in a fire that engulfed their flat in Al Muntazah, media reports said.

“I understand they have finished the autopsy which will serve as a reference for the police investigation report. I expect more developments next week,” Philippine ambassador Wilfredo Santos was quoted as saying by Gulf Times.

Three of the five members of the Pingul family Rafael Paule, Chona Rian, and Micaela, died of smoke inhalation at their residential unit on the fourth floor of their Hamad Medical Corporation accommodation early on December 7, the report said.
