KUALA LUMPUR: A 47-year-old security guard was charged with three counts of soliciting and accepting bribes from a man as an inducement to withdraw an alleged rape case against his son.
N. Perema, the complainant in the rape case, claimed trial to soliciting RM10,000 from R. Suppaiah to withdraw the case against his son S. Sivanesan last year.
She had allegedly committed the offence at Pretty City Seafood Restaurant, No.46-2A, Jalan Merlimau, off Jalan Kenanga, here, on Feb 22 last year at about 7pm.
Perema also pleaded not guilty to two other charges of accepting bribes, totalling RM3,500 from R. Suppaiah as an inducement to settle the case against his son.

Sessions Court judge Rosenani Abd Rahman fixed RM5,000 bail and set Jan 7 for hearing.
