Malaysian Murders His Boss At Their Office After Being Fired For The Second Time
A Malaysian man murdered his former employer with a kitchen knife at their office in Singapore on 11 March
Angered by the news, the 23-year-old returned to the office during lunch hour and stabbed his former boss repeatedly with a kitchen knife
Lin attempted to defend himself with a small knife before succumbing to his injuries.
Since other employees had gone for their lunch break, Jili's other director, Lucas Li Mingqiao, was the only one to rush to the scene to help.
Yu severely injured him as a result.
Police arrived to find that Yu had slashed himself with the knife, but was still breathing
Lin's father revealed that the Malaysian suspect had been working for the company for five years, and that it was actually his second time being fired
"When he was fired the first time, he pleaded for a second chance and (Lin) gave in," the man told The Straits Times.
"But his poor work performance continued to affect the operations of the company and (Lin) decided to fire him the second time," he added, explaining that he frequently took leaves and skipped work without legitimate reasons.
Arrested for murder, Yu will be charged in court today, 13 March.
The murdered victim had started Jili in 2017, as well as eight other companies since 2011
"Even though he is only 30 years old, his company already has about 40 employees and is growing steadily. If he was not sick or overseas, he would always be at the office, even on the weekends," his father said.
Jiji Singapore posted on its website and Facebook account yesterday that it will be closed until further notice, and that its store pick-up, delivery service, and showroom would also be ceasing operations.
