KUALA LUMPUR: A police inspector and a sergeant claimed trial in a Sessions Court Thursday for receiving a total of RM20,500 bribe to solve and lighten sentences in drug cases three years ago.
Insp Mohd Tahzir Husain, 30, was accused to accepting RM20,000 bribe from a 34-year-old jobless man as an inducement to lighten the sentences against the man's 59-year-old father and 40-year-old stepmother.
Both were at that time in police custody after they were suspected to have committed offences under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.
Insp Mohd Tahzir who was attached to the Narcotics Criminal Investigation Division of the Police headquarters here, allegedly committed the offence at Old Town White Coffee Restaurant in Taman Maluri, Cheras, at about 6.18pm on June 29, 2011.
Meanwhile, Sjn Mohd Faridzuddin Hamzah, 24, pleaded not guilty to receiving RM500 bribe from a 53-year-old supermarket manager as an inducement to solve a narcotic case.
Sjn Mohd Faridzuddin who was from Serdang police headquarters Narcotics Criminal Investigation Division, was said to have committed the offence at Restoran Kinrara in Sri Petaling, at about 9.20pm on Apr 1.
Both were accused under Section 17(a) of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission 2009.
Sessions Court judge Rosbiahanin Arifin later granted deputy public prosecutor Wong Poi Yoke's suggestion that the bail be set at RM20,000 for Insp Mohd Tahzir and RM5,000 for Sjn Mohd Faridzuddin.
