2 legal debt collectors jailed for harassing victim over alleged $7.48m debt

A district judge jailed two legal debt collectors whose “aggressive behaviour and insulting words in a residential area in the late hours of the evening” would have caused public disquiet when they harassed a victim at a Chancery Lane house over an alleged $7.48 million debt.

Nigel Teo, then 24, and Ng Kin Meng, then 30, had pleaded guilty to a single charge of being part of an unlawful assembly of five men, who harassed occupant Karl Liew at the three-storey semi-detached house on Sept 22, 2015, at about 10.30pm.
