A man accused of threatening to kill police officers with 38 home-made explosives planted across Hong Kong three months ago has been remanded in custody. Wong Siu-ming, 50, faced one count of sending a letter threatening to murder at West Kowloon Court on Friday afternoon, shortly after his wife and 16-year-old son were released by police without charge following their arrest on Thursday morning. The charge carries a maximum jail sentence of 10 years.

The court heard that police investigations found that Wong had sent the letter from So Uk Post Office in Cheung Sha Wan, about 600 metres from his home on Un Chau Estate. The letter, received by police on April 23, claimed the bombs would be set off by remote control in 24 hours and “it would be game over for the cops”, Principal Magistrate Peter Law Tak-chuen was told.

Prosecutors did not say whether Wong had used any explosives as claimed. Wong was not required to enter a plea, as prosecutors asked for extra time for police to make further inquiries, including analyses of the defendant’s computer, two mobile phones and handwriting samples. The case will be heard again on October 9.
