A man has been charged with sabotage, for a bomb threat that forced a plane to land at Sweden’s Gothenburg airport.
The incident happened at the end of April, when a Boeing 747 of airline Norwegian was forced to land at Landvetter airport in Gothenburg.
No bomb was found, and one man arrested.
He risks up to four years in prison, or a fine of around SEK 75,000, reports Swedish television SVT.
In 1993 the man was involved in a hijacking, when he forced a Russian internal flight to land at Stockholm’s Arlanda, because he wanted to flee to the west.
The prosecutor says the man has an “unclear” position on whether he committed the crime or not.
