China to return 9 Terrex wheeled armoured vehicles to Singapore

The Hong Kong authorities will release the nine Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) armoured vehicles that they had detained since last November.

That was reported by www.straitstimes.com.

In a statement on Tuesday (Jan 24), Singapore’s Foreign Affairs Ministry said Hong Kong’s Chief Executive Leung Chun Ying replied to Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s earlier letter to inform him that the Hong Kong authorities have completed their investigations, “and will be releasing the SAF Terrex Infantry Carrier Vehicles and other equipment to the Singapore Government through the carrier”.

“This is a positive outcome,” the ministry said.

It is worth recalling that the Hong Kong customs officials have seized at least 9 armored military vehicles that were on board a cargo ship from Taiwan that was bound for Singapore in November 2016.
