A West African man has been sentenced to 10 years imprisonment and fined 20,000 Yuan (3,000 dollars) for drug dealings, the People’s Court of Jing’an District in Shanghai announced on Monday.

Named only as “Mike’’ from an unspecified West African country, the man had worked illegally in Guangdong Province after entering China in 2014.

He was said to have moved to Shanghai in 2015.
The man was caught selling cocaine on Jan. 11, 2016, and police found 24 small packs of drugs weighing about 26 grams with him.

Investigation showed that he had been dealing in drugs in Shanghai’s nightclubs since November, 2015.
“He will be deported after serving his time in prison,’’ the court said. (Xinhua/NAN)
