Man gets a year in jail for making bomb threat

A MAN who brought with him a fake bomb and tried to extort 1 million yuan (US$163,400) from a Citi Bank branch in Lujiazui in January was sentenced to one year in prison, the Pudong New Area People’s Court announced  yesterday.

The man surnamed Pang, 28, showed up at the Lujiazui Citi Bank branch with a backpack filled with cylindrical cement bricks about 12:30pm on January 16.

Pang demanded to meet the director of the bank, saying he wanted to open an account at the bank to deposit the “cash  and gold bars” which he said he had in his backpack.

The director was suspicious and denied his request.

Pang then said he had bombs in the backpack and threatened to detonate them with a remote control unless he was given 1  million yuan in cash.

Pang was arrested after the police were alerted. Pang, who was jobless, told the court he wanted to change the society.
