‘Auntie gang’ jailed over reign of terror
« on: August 09, 2017, 01:19:13 pm »
SHANGHAI: Members of a Chinese  “auntie gang” of debt collectors have been jailed over a reign of grey  terror in which they menaced victims and even stripped naked to get them to pay up, state media said.
Fourteen of the senior enforcers received jail sentences of up to 11 years after being convicted of “organising, leading and  participating in gangster-like organisations and for their provocative and disturbing behaviour,” The Beijing News reported yesterday.

About 30 women with an average age of 50 – some of whom met  while engaging in the elderly pastime of dancing in public squares –  took part in the scheme in Shangqiu, Henan province.

The sentences were handed down last month after a four-year  spree in which the accused – hired by a property developer and firms  that wanted debts paid – used strong-arm tactics to collect the money or  forced people from their homes to make way for big construction projects.
             
They would shout at or insult debtors into submission using loudspeakers. When that did not work, they spat at them.

Some female victims had their clothes torn off, while men said the aggressive aunties would rip off their own clothes to imply  they had been sexually assaulted.

sad to say, those aunties could have got the ah-lian-ness out of their system if they had lived in Singapore. 

this is the "lost" generation in China who didn't have the chance to club and party when young ...
