Jail for speed camera bombers

Thursday 22 November 2012

Two men who used home-made explosives to damage a speed camera last year, seriously injuring one man, have been jailed for 2.5 and two years.

Police were alerted to 'something strange' hanging from the camera at a junction in Voorschoten very early on a Sunday morning in October 2011. The explosive device went off around four hours later, blowing one of the army experts who was examining the scene into the air.

He lost a hand in the explosion and suffered eye damage. Another man received damage to his ear drum and a third still has eye and ear problems, news agency ANP said.

The court in The Hague ruled that although Jorn de V and Erik O did not directly injure the others, they would not have been hurt if the bomb had not been left in a public place.
