SINGAPORE, A British man was charged here Friday for providing false information regarding a terror attack on Singapore's 40th National Day Parade in 2005.
Khor Chye Siew, 42, was arrested on May 26 this year upon his entry at Singapore's Changi Airport from London.
According to court documents, Khor had sent an e-mail to Sarina Isnin, an officer from the then Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts of Singapore, on July 24, 2005, knowing she would report it to the police.
He allegedly informed her that the country's intelligence service had failed to detect all terrorist activities here, and that they had to take his tip-off seriously or something horrible would happen.
He wrote: "There is gonna be 3 suicide bombings during your country's 40th National Day Parade, I know who & where these crooks are," adding that the authorities had two weeks to take action as Singapore's National Day falls on Aug. 9.
It was reported he could be jailed for up to a year and fined up to 5,000 Singapore dollars (3,623 U.S. dollars) if proved guilty.
