Denmark jails neo-Nazis over bombs to Britain
Wednesday 03 September 1997
The Danish news agency Ritzau said that the court sentenced Thomas Derry Nakaba, the plot leader, to eight years in prison, a stiff sentence in liberal Denmark. His accomplices, Michael Volder and Nicky Steensgaard, were each jailed for three years.
Court officials earlier said that the jury had convicted the three of preparing three letter bombs, one addressed to the British television presenter Sharon Davies, who is married to Derek Redmond, the black athlete. Another was aimed at the Anti-Fascist Action organisation and the third at a wing of the far-right Combat 18 group as part of an internecine struggle between neo-Nazi factions.
Danish Police said the devices, disguised as video cassettes, contained dummy explosive but real detonators which could have blown a recipient's hand off.
