Fourteen govt staff released on MACC bail in bribery probe on massage parlours

SHAH ALAM: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) released 14 people from various government agencies after their remand order ended Monday.

They were arrested on March 13 for allegedly accepting bribes ranging from RM300 to RM10,000 from the massage parlour operators in two districts.

All were released on bail after their seven day remand order, said an MACC source.

"Investigations into the allegations are still ongoing," said the source.

The suspects were eight policemen, four Fire and Rescue Department personnel and a Kajang Municipal Council employee.

Three more suspects were nabbed after the March 13 arrests, said the MACC source.

One of them was released together with the 13 while an enforcement officer and a member of the public are still under detention.
