MBS casino bomb hoax

By Elena Chong

A MAN was brought to court on Tuesday for allegedly making a bomb hoax call that 10 bombs would explode at the newly-opened Marina Bay Sands.

No plea was taken from Fang Xing Chi, 30, a salesman.

He is alleged to have called 999 at about 1.50am on Monday, saying that 10 C4 or plastic bombs would explode in MBS casino and that police had 12 hours to respond.
