TAWAU: A 32-year old police inspector was remanded for three days beginning this Wednesday to facilitate Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) investigations into a case involving RM3,000.
Tawau High Court deputy registrar Amir Shah Amir Hassan issued the remand order against the inspector, who is a prosecuting officer.
The suspect was remanded under Section 17(a) of the MACC 2009 Act for soliciting or accepting a bribe.
The MACC picked up the policeman at about 2.30pm on Wednesday while he was in a vehicle in Jalan Damai, Tawau for allegedly accepting a bribe from the family of a plaintiff to reduce a sentence for weapon possession. - Bernama
