PETALING JAYA: In a bid to uphold the integrity of the police, Bukit Aman’s top traffic cop has warned motorists against trying to bribe his personnel.
Federal traffic chief Senior Asst Comm Mohd Fuad Abdull Latiff said he had directed his personnel to arrest anyone who attempted to bribe them.
“We will show no leniency on this matter.
“Bribing is a serious offence and I will not tolerate it,” he said when contacted yesterday.
He also urged anyone who had information on his personnel accepting bribes to contact the police or Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) immediately.
“We hold regular joint operations with the MACC and the Road Transport Department.
“Do not try to bribe my personnel or you will be nabbed on the spot,” he said.
SAC Mohd Fuad said anyone with complaints about his personnel could e-mail their grouses to email@example.com or visit the official website at www.rmp.gov.my/ispaaa.
It was reported earlier this year that five Singaporeans were among 17 men charged in the Sessions Court in Johor Baru for bribing traffic enforcement officers.
The suspects, aged between 26 and 56, had given out bribes of between RM50 and RM1,000 to the police and Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) officers during roadblocks between October and November last year.
Anyone with information on bribery can also contact the Bukit Aman police hotline at 03-2266 3333 or 03-2031 9999.
