Choa Chu Kang block gets CCTV to fight loan sharks
Authorities have brought forward the installation of closed-circuit television cameras at a Housing Board block targeted by loan sharks.
Residents of Block 538 in Limbang town, Choa Chu Kang, had been receiving letters threatening that they would be locked in their flats.
The tactic of sending such letters to random residents, even if they do not owe money, is often used by loan sharks.
Last night, MP for Chua Chu Kang GRC Alex Yam said that CCTV cameras were installed at the block two weeks ago, a fortnight sooner than they were due to be put in.
