Five more Penang JPJ officers remanded

GEORGE TOWN: Wearing plainclothes and shielding their faces, five more enforcement officers of Penang Road Transport Department (JPJ) tried to avoid having their pictures taken as they went before a magistrate’s court to be remanded in connection with alleged involvement in “protecting” lorry drivers.

This is the latest round of arrests by Malaysian Anti-Corruption Com­mission (MACC), which is investigating a protection racket involving transport companies and lorry drivers. Magistrate L. Umma Devi yesterday granted the seven-day remand order.
