The Pakistani doctor responsible for helping the CIA track down Usama bin Laden has been sent to prison for treason in his home country.

FOX News Radio's Dominic Di-Natale reports from Islamabad:

Thirty-three years of jail and hard labor for high treason, that's what Shakil AfridiĀ got for running a CIA vaccination program aimed at collecting DNA evidence of Usama bin Laden's presence in Pakistan.

Convicted of high treason by a tribal court, Afridi was not present before the ruling Jirga.

Under tribal rules, the surgeon would not have even been allowed access to a lawyer, nor even to defend himself. And it appears he won't even have the right to appeal.
