Thai national jailed over debtor harassment

Thursday, 16 March 2017

SINGAPORE: A Thai national who splashed red paint on a pre-school where a debtor’s children had attended was sentenced to 15 months’ jail and 3 strokes of the cane.

Samroeng Sompop, 33, left the same evening by taxi after completing the loan shark harassment job at Modern Montessori International (MMI) pre-school on the third-level of a block at The Pinnacle@Duxton on 13 January last year.

He pleaded guilty to causing annoyance to the childcare centre staff with Lee Tiow Kiong, 56, while acting on behalf of an unlicensed moneylender known as Kelvin in connection with a loan taken by the debtor.

Investigations showed that the debtor had taken a loan from a loan shark, known as Ah Siao, in August 2015 and had subsequently defaulted on payments.
