A male, surnamed Hung, from Kaohsiung left comments online saying he wanted to blow up the Kaohsiung MRT and HSR. His threats were discovered by the police, who followed the leads and traced them to Hung and arrested him on Sunday morning at approximately 1am.

At around 8pm Saturday evening, the National Police Agency’s Railway Police Bureau, while conducting an Internet search, discovered Hung had left online comments such as “I want to make a bomb and blow up the MRT and HSR,” and immediately set up a special task force to collect data related to the case.

Having undertaken a filter search of the data obtained, the police then analyzed the leads, which eventually led to Hung’s true identity. They proceeded to his residence in Kaohsiung’s Zihguan District at around 1am Sunday morning.

At the same time, they also obtained as evidence comments Hung had previously posted to Facebook threatening to blow up the MRT and HSR.

Hung admitted to making the comments, saying that he was venting his frustration as things were not going well at work, but that he didn’t have the ability to make explosives, and neither was he in possession of anything explosive.
