A Chinese court sentenced an Icelandic man to 11 months in prison for assault, last month. The man, who is in his thirties, has been living in the Chinese city Dalian. The man is sentenced for hitting a cab driver in the face, early last year.
The ministry of foreign affairs in Iceland is now assisting the mans family. The ministry has for example requested that the family can visit the man, but that has not been granted yet.
