- Swedish terror suspect: I want to be a martyr (25 Apr 16)
Aydin Sevigin was arrested in February, suspected of having tried to build a bomb. Police found six bottles of aceton, duct tape, a mobile phone and bullets during a search of his home. A receipt for Christmas tree lights and surveillance footage showing him buying a pressure cooker from Ikea were also part of the case.
The 20-year-old, who grew up in the well-off suburb Danderyd north of Stockholm, denied the claims, but refused to explain why he bought the ingredients, which can be used to build bombs.
“My opinion is that he acquired, stored and collected liquids and objects to make and then blow up a suicide bomb in order to become a martyr. The criminal act being prepared could seriously have hurt Sweden,” prosecutor Ewamari Häggkvist said ahead of the verdict.
Attunda District Court, north of Stockholm, sentenced him to five years in jail on Thursday morning for “preparing to commit a terror crime”.
It said it had reduced the sentence by one year because he is aged under 21.
“It is not clear what would have been the target of a bomb attack. But we believe that blowing up a shrapnel bomb of this kind would have been able to harm Sweden and that the purpose of such a bomb must have been to instil fear in the way referred to by terrorism legislation,” said the chairman of the court, Mikael Swahn, in a statement.
