A gang of old age pensioners who kidnapped and tortured their financial adviser because he had ‘taken us for a ride’ were jailed in Germany today.
The five German seniors said they were so incensed over the losses that American-born investment specialist James Amburn incurred that they hatched the plan to kidnap him in a bid to get their cash back.
They were charged with kidnapping, illegally confining and causing grievous bodily harm to Mr Amburn, 56.
And at the court in Traunstein – the town where the Pope was raised – they paid for their payback with hefty jail terms.
