I'm just curious, what are those situations that they might go to jail if they don't pay their debts? Because it's clearly stated in law that no one should be put in jail they should know their rights.

I strongly doubt there is any reason or situation whereby a debtor can be sent to prison for not paying. As long as the individual acknowledged his debt and willing to pay up when the resources to pay is available to him or her, there is nothing like getting convicted over the debt and actually serving jail time. 

The only thing that I would agree to is if such individual is connected to having committed fraud in order to clear his or her debt and once caught, there is definitely going to be conviction and jail time coming for such person.
