Last week a man arrived at Geneva airport at 1pm and told staff at the Aeroflot counter there was a bomb on board the plane he was attempting to board. The 39 year old man arrived late and his flight to Moscow was about to take off. Taking the threat seriously, the pilot was forced to stop the plane and evacuate all 115 passengers. A bomb disposal team then spent four hours searching the aircraft for explosive devices.
Eventually the flight took off, but much later than scheduled.
The 39 year old man, who is from India and lives in Vaud on a C-permit, according to Le Matin, was judged guilty of an “alarmist threat to the public” and sentenced to 6 months imprisonment.
