Youth accused of making false police report about anthrax attack at Bedok Mall

Youth accused of making false police report about anthrax attack at Bedok Mall

A 22-year-old was charged on Wednesday (May 25) with making a false police report, which alleged that a man would release anthrax spores in a mall and bus interchange at Bedok.

Court documents showed the accused as Mercury Jamie Alice and stated that the person is male. In social media accounts, a person of the same name identifies as a "trans (transgender) woman".

Mercury faces one charge each of communicating false information about a harmful thing, and possessing obscene videos and images.

The Singaporean is said to have submitted an I-Witness report to the police on the evening of National Day — Aug 9 — last year.

Using a different name, Mercury wrote of wanting to report “an incidence of anthrax spores being released later today at Bedok Mall and the attached bus interchange on National Day”.
