On 16 November 2017, the Singapore Police Force brought charges against five men and one woman under the Organised Crime Act ("OCA") for their alleged involvement in an Organised Crime Group which had been engaging extensively in illegal gambling-related activities. The group was also charged with offences under the Remote Gambling Act, the Common Gaming Houses Act, the Corruption, Drug Trafficking and Other Serious Crimes (Confiscation of Benefits) Act and the Penal Code. This marks the first time accused persons have been charged under the OCA in connection with gambling related activities since the OCA came into force on 1 June 2016.
