SUPP man urges public to not speculate on alleged bomb threat at SMK Kuching High

Foo (centre) and SMK Kuching High School management board and staff members lodged a police report regarding the incident earlier today.

KUCHING, Nov 22: Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) Public Complaints Bureau chief Milton Foo, has urged both the management of SMK Kuching High and the public to refrain from speculating on an alleged bomb threat the school received via email this morning.

In a statement today, Foo echoed the school’s official press release, which indicated that at 11.30am, an email allegedly from ‘ISIS My’ had warned of a bombing at 3pm on Nov 22, using the explosive substance type C4.

For safety reasons, the school promptly filed a police report at Balai Polis Padungan and communicated the situation to parents via a WhatsApp circular, advising them to pick up their children from school.


As a precautionary measure, afternoon classes were also canceled.

Foo clarified that the school has entrusted the police with the investigation, prioritising the safety of students and teachers.

“The school will adhere to the advice and instructions of the police regarding the safety of the premises,” he affirmed.

Foo, who was informed of the bomb threat by school board chairman Johnny Lim, emphasised the importance of not speculating on the nature of the threat at this stage.

“At this juncture, it is best not to speculate, but to give room to the police for a thorough investigation.

“The safety of the children and teachers is of utmost importance and should be given top priority. We thank the police for their prompt action in closing down the school premises before 3pm and sending a team there at once,” he stated. — DayakDaily
