How to access recipient attributes in Velocity email template

I have some custom email templates in JIRA 6.4.12

One of my predecessors edited the issuementioned template with following attributes:

${recipient.name}
${recipient.displayName}

Those attributes are not working and are printed as text. issue.key for example does work.

Is there a 'new' way for accessing the name of the email recipient?

 

according to this page it should work, right? https://developer.atlassian.com/jiradev/jira-platform/jira-architecture/jira-templates-and-jsps/velocity-context-for-email-templates

Got this working with 

$recipient.getName()
$recipient.getDisplayName()

that works in most of the templates but not in issuementioned.vm

I'm now using "currentUser()" in my jql link instead of the actual username
