A 60-year-old man has been sentenced to ten months in prison for calling bomb threats against multiple airports, people and public institutions.

Four of the ten months have been served, and the probationary period is set for two years, NRK writes.

The man was arrested in October after he called in a bomb threat to Trondheim Airport Værnes. In all, the man was charged with nine threats, including airports, public institutions, two police officers and a lawyer.

In court, the man admitted to calling but denied criminal charges because he believes he was experiencing a psychotic episode.

He said the reason he called the threats was because he felt harassed by the police.

– “I wanted the police to do something other than bother me. After two years of harassment, I retaliated,” the man said in court.

The forensic experts who have evaluated the man believe that the man was not or is not psychotic, but that he suffers from delusions that the police are particularly concerned about him.
