Man dies in detention for non-payment of fine
A Sri Lankan man has died in a jail in Lucerne. The 42-year-old was serving a short sentence for the non-payment of a fine.
Police say they noticed the man was in distress in his cell, but died despite resuscitation attempts.
Investigators say the man was already suffering with health problems. But he had been examined by a doctor who said he was healthy enough to be detained.
