S’poreans urged not to leave tissue packets unattended as they pose as bomb threats

Personal liberties curtailed in age of terrorism.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who like to use cunning methods to get ahead during lunch and dinner, have been urged not to leave tissue packets unattended in hawker centres.

This after belongings left unattended in public have resulted in explosions overseas.

One Singaporean, Bao Zha, said he will stop leaving tissue packets unattended as a sign of taking vigilance seriously: “The next time I see tissue packets unattended in public places, I will not hesitate to call the police as they could be bombs planted by destroyers of peace.”

Other Singaporeans said the ubiquity of unattended tissue packets especially during lunch time in the Central Business District eating areas make it attractive for terrorists to mask their weapons as something similar.

Qu Zuo Lao, another local, said: “I urge the authorities to take this threat of unattended tissue packets seriously and arrest those who do not stop this practice as they are contributing to the potential of attacks.”

“We need to be vigilant and not let our guard down and fall prey to terrorists just because we value convenience.”

“We also urge Singaporeans not to panic when they see tissue packets unattended. They just need to turn around and run far away.”
