The Police have arrested two women during an enforcement operation conducted on 22 January 2019 against vice activities in a HDB flat along Lorong 1 Toa Payoh.

During the enforcement operation conducted by Tanglin Police Division, two women, aged 34 and 46, were arrested for offences under the Women's Charter. Preliminary investigations revealed that the women had advertised their sexual services online and operated from a rented HDB flat.

Investigations are ongoing.

Flat owners play an important role in preventing vice in heartlands, and are reminded to conduct regular checks on their tenants to prevent vice activities from proliferating in residential estates. Tenants who are found to be involved in the misuse of the flat will not be allowed to rent an HDB flat for five years.

Flat owners who knowingly rent their premises to any person for vice-related activities shall be liable, on conviction, to a fine not exceeding $3,000, or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding three years, or to both.

The Police will spare no effort to take tough enforcement action against vice activities. Those found engaging in such activities will be dealt with in accordance to the law.
