Eight men who chanted gang slogans during a funeral service held at Mandai Crematorium Service Hall last year will be charged in court on Thursday (July 30).
The eight men, aged between 22 and 45, will be charged for being members of an unlawful society, said the police in a statement.
Police investigations revealed that the eight men had "chanted gang slogans to show off their secret society affiliation" during a funeral service held at the crematorium on August 24, 2019.
The offence of being members of an unlawful society carries a fine not exceeding $5,000 and/or or a jail term of up to three years.
"The police have zero tolerance towards secret society activities and will not hesitate to take action against those who choose to be associated with gangs and blatantly disregard the law," they added in the statement.
