Bomb HoaxEdit

Liu Tze Yuen, 42, a Chinese man was behind the Hougang bomb hoax which disrupted train services for hours on August 12, 2005. He was also accused of putting boxes in public buses on July 7 and August 12 - the latter on the same day he was accused of carrying out the hoax at Hougang MRT station.

On July 7, he was said to have placed a white package in a bus that he was travelling in. He did it at about noon on route 151 as he was travelling along Hougang Avenue 3. Tacked on the package was a note which said: 'If you see it, please don't touch and leave this bus.'

More than a month later, on August 12, he allegedly left another package wrapped heavily with scotch tape on route 143 while he was travelling along Eu Tong Sen Street in Chinatown. He was said to have done it at about 1:30 pm - an hour after he allegedly left a similar package at the Hougang MRT station. The package was found to have only empty food cans and empty packets of instant noodles.

Liu allegedly intended the passengers on the two buses and the train station to believe that the packages contained explosive devices and was later sentenced to 3½ years in jail.[1]
