Five members of the Cuban men’s national volleyball team have been given prison sentences of up to five years after being found guilty of rape in Finland.
The men were convicted of raping a Finnish woman in the city of Tampere, southern Finland, during a Volleyball World League tournament held there in July according to RT.
Four of the men were given five-year prison sentences, while the fifth was handed a three-and-a-half-year term.
The men were also told to pay a total of €24,000 ($27,000) in compensation to the victim.
The men were among eight members of the team detained on July 2, after a woman said she had been raped at a hotel where the team was staying.
