Moneylending is tough in Singapore

According to a story in one of the local papers here in Singapore, people can be jailed indefinitely without trial for "illegal moneylending", whatever that is. Asking for clarification from the locals wasn't reassuring--their understanding is that it meant lending money without formal permission. I guess the banks don't like competition.

Update: Jan. 3 - I forgot to clarify that the article actually says "jailed indefinitely pending trial". So there will be a trial--someday.
