They had made what seemed to be meticulous plans, and all they needed was a body.

Three Myanmar man were arrested and charged in court on Wednesday with abetment by conspiracy to commit murder.

The three, aged between 32 and 37, are believed to have targeted Mr Aye Maung Maung Thet, 28, a Singapore permanent resident in their murderous plot.

Fortunately for Mr Aye, the trio’s plans came asunder when Mr Aye’s screams for help attracted passersby and the trio fled.

It all happened on Sunday evening last, when Mr Aye was at the multi-storey car park at block 747-A, Pasir Ris Street 71.

Mr Aye was attacked by two of the three Myanmar nationals with a taser gun, who also tried to abduct him.

When Mr Aye screamed for help and attracted the attention of passersby, his two attackers fled the scene.

Mr Aye then made a police report about the incident.

“Upon receipt of the report, officers from Bedok Police Division responded immediately and conducted extensive enquiries to establish the identities of the suspects,” the police said later in a press release. “In an ambush conducted, officers arrested the first suspect, a 37-year-old man, at the vicinity of Balestier Road on 22 June 2015 at about 1.00pm.”

At 9.50pm the same day, the police arrested another two men – both 32-year-old, at a chalet at Aloha Changi.

“During the operation, items such as a meat mincer, chainsaw, kitchen knives, gas cooker, gas cylinder tank, a tool set, trolley bags, plastic sheets, cable ties, cleaver, aprons, chopping board and rubber boots were also recovered from the chalet and seized as case exhibits,” the police, which also released photos of these, said.

The attack and abduction attempt is thus believed to have been an attempt to subsequently murder Mr Aye.

The three men arrested are Yae Wynnt Oaung, 32; Phyo Min Naing, 31; and Singapore permanent resident, Zaw Min Hlaing.

On 23 June, the police were alerted to a case of an abandoned vehicle at the basement carpark of Changi Airport Terminal 3.

“Officers responded to the scene and discovered a white Mitsubishi multi-purpose vehicle parked at the said location. Preliminary investigations suggested that the vehicle is involved in the case and it has also been seized as a case exhibit.”

The three suspects were charged on Wednesday and face up to 14 years in jail for the offence.

The police also said it is looking for 29-year old Win Kyaw Kyaw Aung, or alias Aung Aung, another Myanmar national, to assist in investigations into this case.

Preliminary investigations revealed that Aung Aung had left Singapore on the morning of 22 June 2015.

It is unclear what the motive for the alleged attempted murder is.

Here are the photos of the case exhibits which the police have released with its press statement. These photos show the similar array of items which police recovered from the Changi Aloha chalet which are believed to be intended to be used for the dismemberment of Mr Aye:

陈振声:暂没法恢复大众旅游 本地旅游料掀裁员风

贸工部长陈振声指出,暂时无法恢复大众旅游活动,预计在未来数个月,本地旅游业将难逃裁员命运,而政府会帮助工友们寻找新的工作。 通过视讯出席旅游复苏对话会时,陈振声披露,为了应对有可能出现的旅游业裁员命运,政府将帮助相关企业进行服务或产品的重新设计工作,甚至还会帮助失业工友重新获得就业机会。前提是,这些工友们必须尽快获得重新培训,掌握新的技能,以便转行投入其他行业中。 他指出,虽然本地的市场不大,但是为国人提供就业机会,仍然是足够的。 他也补充,政府会在未来数个月和数年间,在等待旅游业复苏的同时进行投资。 旅游局昨日曾表示拨出4500万元,将和圣淘沙发展局、新加坡企业发展局以及国内旅游业者合作,鼓励国人在境内游玩和消费。 当局有意透过“重新探索新加坡”计划(SingapoRediscovers),将国人部分出行开销,转移国内消费。初期阶段约40商家将提供80景点、导览和酒店住宿等优惠。 旅游局局长陈建隆坦言,境外旅游恐怕短时间内不会显著恢复。预计航空旅游未来五年的复苏,都会落后于大部分的经济活动。 但是,陈振声今日的发言却似泼了一盆冷水,可见冠状病毒疫情对国内旅游业的影响,复苏工作还是长远工作。
