CORRECTION of an article published Nov 15 titled “Singapore arrests 86 people for drugs this week”:
Freedistrict reported on November 15, 2013 that the Singapore police had arrested 86 people for drug offences during a four-day period last week. Freedistrict also reported that police investigations were ongoing.
However, the operations were actually conducted by the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) in Singapore, rather than the police. Hence, the arrests were made by the CNB, and investigations by the CNB are ongoing.
