A two-year-old assault case in Singapore involving a former junior Tall Black basketballer has been raised in Singapore's parliament as an example of foreigners fleeing the law.

It's also sparked an internal police inquiry in Singapore.

Arrest warrants have been issued against Robert Stephen Dahlberg, 34, and Briton Robert James Springall, 25, who face charges over a brawl at Suntec City two years ago, My Paper reports.

A spokeswoman for New Zealand police says she had no information on the case and Singapore police are the lead agency.

Singapore police are conducting an internal inquiry on how the two foreigners absconded while on bail, Minister for Home Affairs, Teo Chee Hean, told parliament on Thursday.

He highlighted the case as an example of the problem of foreigners fleeing the law.

Another accused, Australian Nathan Robert Miller, 35, pleaded guilty in February and was sentenced to three weeks' jail.

Mr Dahlberg was working as a broker in Singapore. He comes from Nelson.
