The Police have arrested five men, aged between 26 and 32, for their suspected involvement in gang-related activities.

On 14 November 2017, Police were alerted to an online video depicting several men shouting gang-related slogans in Envy Dance Club located at St James Power Station. Following extensive ground enquiries and follow-up investigations on the same day, officers from the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) arrested the men within 24 hours.

Investigations against the men are ongoing.

The Police take a very stern view of gang-related activities and will continue with tough enforcement efforts and come down hard on those who choose to be associated with gangs and their activities. Anyone convicted for being a member of an unlawful society under Section 14(3) of the Societies Act, Chapter 311, is liable to be sentenced to a fine not exceeding $5,000 or to imprisonment for a term of up to 3 years or to both.
