A drunk german car driver caused an accident in Xi'an (Yanta District) last week and was condemned to 15 days in prison, said a high ranking police officer to ND. The man is the first foreigner who, since the beginning of the country wide campaign "Don't drink and drive" - initiated last month - got into the hands of the police. According to the police report, the man is 38 years old and has an EU driving licence. He had to pay a fine of 1500 RMB.

Liu Yang, a commanding police officer of the Xi'an police in the Yanta District, said to ND that the german embassy asked him to not publish the identity of the german expat.

"Cases like these where foreigners are involved must be reported to the corresponding embassy of the foreign national. The german embassy asked us to keep the identity of the man confidential and not to announce it to the media. So, we must and have to respect that of course", said Liu.

Furthermore he said, that the man drove with an illegal driving licence (EU-Licence). In China it is required to have a chinese driving licence.

The front part of the german expat's KIA Car crashed into a VW Jetta. Both cars were totally destroyed but luckily no passengers were injured. The field sobriety test showed a BAL of 2,0. The german expat said that he was on the way to his chinese wife in Xi'an and drank alcohol on his birthday party. The chinese interior ministry for public security declared that in heavy cases of drunk-driving it can impose 15 days of imprisonment.
