KANGAR: Two officers from the Perlis Fire and Rescue Department were arrested on Wednesday for soliciting and accepting bribes amounting to RM1,200.
The two men, aged 45 and 49, were arrested at about 12.15pm in Pauh, near here by the state Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.
State MACC director Yaacop Angah said the RM1,200 bribe was meant as an inducement for the officers to not take any action against a premise owner.
"The premise owner was said to have violated a building safety procedure, and the arrest was made after the state MACC received a tip-off," he said.
The suspects are expected to be remanded on Thursday.
