Player compensated for wrongful detention
    2017-September-28  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A CUBAN volleyball player was given unusually large compensation for being wrongfully detained in Finland.

The normal payment for detention as an innocent is 100 euros (US$117.9) per day or slightly more, but the Cuban got 500 euros per day, according to media reports. The total reached nearly 200,000 euros.

In July 2016, five Cuban volleyball players were detained in Tampere, central southern Finland, on suspicion of having raped a Finnish woman at a hotel.

They were all convicted by a local court, but the court of appeals later found one of them, Luis Tomas Sosa Sierra, innocent. The court said there was no proof that he had participated in the rape.

Pekka Syrjanen, head of legal affairs at the State Treasury, told local media the compensation is not the highest so far.

A woman wrongfully detained on suspicion of killing her husband received 800 euros per day some years ago.
