Triad Web Master Arrested In Singapore

In Singapore, a 19-year-old Web master has been arrested by authorities for alleged involvement in organized crime.

According to local press reports, Singaporean Lester Chang was listed as the creator of a Web site dedicated to a well-known triad leader. He potentially faces a heavy fine and a jail sentence.

The site, in English and Chinese, featured pictures of tattooed youths and triad slogans. It was taken down recently after being featured in a local newspaper.

Police in Singapore have been closely monitoring Web sites in the island republic which feature triads and are keen to enforce strict laws against promotion of triad gangs and their activities.
