AN Italian company director has admitted causing an Ebola scare by playing a “sick joke” on board an Aer Lingus plane that triggered a major security alert at Dublin airport.
Roberto Binaschi (56) had scribbled “Attenzione Ebola” on a coffee cup lid as a prank on his daughter on the flight from Milan.
Passenger fined €2,500 over ‘sick’ Ebola joke on Dublin plane
An Italian businessman has been fined for making a private joke about the Ebola virus to his daughter on an Aer Lingus flight.
IT company director Roberto Binaschi, who had come to Ireland with his family to attend a conference, told a judge today, “I don’t know how to apologise”.
Judge Anthony Halpin said that given the seriousness of the Ebola virus, Mr Binaschi’s prank was a “sick joke” and comparable to a bomb scare.
However, he noted that Mr Binaschi was apologetic and had offered to pay €2,500 to charity.
