Fenwick MacIntosh loses appeal, 7-year sentence upheld

Fenwick MacIntosh will not be getting out of prison anytime soon.

An appeal court in Nepal has upheld the Nova Scotia businessman's seven-year sentence for molesting a 15-year-old boy in that country.      

In January, the prison warden told CTV News the 72-year old has been undergoing treatment for leukemia.

The court's decision comes as welcome news to Bob Martin, one of MacIntosh's Canadian victims.
