Turkish Man Who Sent Fake Bomb To Sisters Wedding Gets 4 Years
A Turk who tried to stop his sister marrying her jobless fiance by sending a fake bomb as a wedding present was jailed for four years yesterday.
Hasan Aydemir, 28, was unhappy when his younger sister, student Hatice, decided to tie the knot with Menderes Atici without her family’s blessing.
Three days before the ceremony in Istanbul, he mocked up his bomb with a clock, electrical wiring and putty made to look like plastic explosives.
He carefully wrapped the device in a presentation box and even neatly tied it with a red ribbon before posting it from a branch of UPS in Camden, north London.
It was addressed to the wedding hall in the Gungoren area of Istanbul where his sister was due to be married three days later, and included instructions for it to be placed on the top table.
