Doc­tor jailed for bunker hostage

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A DOC­TOR has been caged for 10 years for ab­duct­ing a woman and lock­ing her in a home­made bunker.

Martin Tren­neborg, 38, planned the ab­duc­tion over a long pe­riod of time and sub­jected the vic­tim to se­ri­ous risk by se­dat­ing her and keep­ing her locked up in a sound­proof bunker – built in­side a ma­chine shed next to his home – for a week.

At Stock­holm District Court, he ad­mit­ted keep­ing the woman locked in the bunker but de­nied hav­ing kid­napped or raped her.

Tren­neborg, who was ac­quit­ted of charges of ag­gra­vated rape, claimed he was suf­fer­ing a men­tal dis­or­der at the time.

How­ever the court de­scribed the doc­tor’s men­tal dis­or­der as “not se­ri­ous” and he was also or­dered to pay £15,000 in dam­ages to the woman.
