Singapore man accused of bomb threats against Taiwanese legislative speaker, 1 other politician

Loo Peng Seng, a Singaporean, was handed four charges of communicating false, harmful information on Tuesday.

It came after the police said in a statement on Monday evening that they were alerted on March 4 to a case of an alleged bomb threat.

“A member of the public reported that she came across a post on Facebook by a public figure based overseas which stated that he had received bomb threats from someone claiming to be from Singapore,” said the police. “Preliminary investigations revealed that the man had no intention or means to carry out his threats.”

According to court documents, Loo allegedly sent a false bomb threat via Facebook Messenger on February 28 to “Han Guo Yu”.

Loo allegedly wrote: “Han Guo Yu, I am going to bring a lot of bombs to put in your car or home.”

Later that day, Loo allegedly sent a false bomb threat to another politician in Taiwan, Lo Chih-Chiang, via the same social media platform, writing that he would “use the bombs to blow you up to pieces”.

The next day, Loo allegedly sent another message to Han, saying that he was “going to make sure I will also blow you up your family members with car bombs”.

Loo was also accused of sending another false threat on March 1 to Lo.

“Lo Chih Chiang, I am going to bomb your home. And I have a lot of bombs to bomb the Legislative Yuan building,” he wrote. This refers to Taiwan’s main legislative building.

Court documents did not state if they were referring to the Taiwanese politician of the same name, Kuomintang member Lo Chih-Chiang.

However, it did state that Lo put up a post on Facebook on March 2, stating that he had received a bomb threat.

He also uploaded screenshots of texts he received from a “Spencer Lui” via Facebook Messenger on February 29 and March 1,
