Seven men aged between 35 and 48 were arrested for their suspected involvement in a case of unlawful assembly.
On Jan 15 at about 1.20pm, police were informed that a group of debt collectors were causing nuisance at Food Junction at Funan DigitaLife Mall, the Singapore Police Force said in a news release on Friday (Feb 13).
Preliminary investigations revealed that the debt collectors were demanding a loan repayment from one of the stall owners. It is believed that their actions prevented customers from patronising that particular food stall, police said.
The suspects were arrested between 10am on Thursday (Feb 12) and 3.30pm on Friday at various locations around Singapore. Computers, laptops and company documents were also seized as case exhibits.
All seven suspects will be charged in court on Saturday. If found guilty, they may be jailed for a term of up to two years, or fined, or both.
