MOSCOW, December 09. /ITAR-TASS/. A guilty verdict on air hooligan Sergei Kabalov, found guilty of an attempt to hijack a plane on a flight from Moscow to Hurghada on January 11, is a warning for all who would venture to repeat such a “feat”, spokesman for the Russian Investigative Committee Vladimir Markin said on Monday.
“The Investigative Committee warns those who would feel like repeating such ‘feats’ on board a plane, at an airport or a railway station,” he said. “By their inadequate and criminal wrongdoings the so-called air hooligans create a real danger for the health and safety of passengers and jeopardize the lives of all on board the plane,” he said. “The Criminal Code of the Russian Federation envisages a prison term up to 12 years for such actions,” he reminded the audience.
The investigation and court have established that being a passenger on board a Moscow-Hurghada plane on January 11, Kabalov took actions towards hijacking the plane, using violence and threatening violence dangerous for the life and health against the crew and an indefinite number of passengers. However, his scheme failed for reasons beyond his control, as his aggressive actions were stopped by the crew, and the hijacking was prevented.
The verdict will be discussed on January 10.
