Irish human rights lawyer, who abused and spat on Air India crew for being refused extra drinks, commits suicide

Simone Burns was found dead at her home in East Sussex country, just two weeks after she was released from prison.

An Irish woman who had hurled racist abuses and spat on the crew of Air India flight she was travelling in, was found dead on June 1st just days after having served her prison sentence.

50-year-old Simone Burns was found dead at her home in East Sussex in England after having served a prison sentence for her behaviour onboard the Air India flight late last year. As per reports, she is said to have committed suicide.

In the videos that went viral in November last year, it could be seen that Burns was on a racist rant embarrassing her fellow passengers. She said “I am working for all your people, the f**king Rohingyas, the f**king people of Asia for four years as international criminal lawyer, didn’t take any money for it, by the way, but you won’t give me a f**king glass of wine. Is that correct?”

Burns, who claimed to be a human rights lawyer by profession,  boarded an Air India flight from Mumbai to Heathrow. In a video that went viral, it could be seen that Burns went on rant abusing the Air India crew for refusing to serve her alcohol. Burns was already in an inebriated state after having 3 bottles of wine.

She had also threatened the crew by asserting that she was an “international criminal lawyer”. She had also spat at a male crew member. She was subsequently arrested after landing at Heathrow airport. She was sentenced to six months of prison after having pleaded guilty of assault and being drunk.

Burns was released from prison on license on May 20, after spending less than two months in jail. The police are not treating her death as supicious and it has been ruled as an apparent suicide.
