debt collector uses an iron bar in debt collection

Wednesday, August 14, 2013 - Posted by Philip Harvey

In the UK, an unlicensed debt collector used an iron bar on a debtor who refused to make a payment. The collector attended the debtors premises, demanded 3000 pounds from a mechanic who had used the money to purchase work tools. When payment could not be made, he pushed the debtor into his house and then used an 18 inch iron bar and hit the debtor on the body and legs.

The collector was jailed for 12 months for causing actual bodily harm and ordered to pay 500 pounds in compensation and 5,000 pounds in costs.
