SHAH ALAM: The six bank employees who were detained for allegedly soliciting and receiving bribes from loan applicants have been remanded for seven days.

The six suspects were brought to a Shah Alam Magistrate's Court on Wednesday (June 9) for the remand process.

They were remanded for seven days until June 15.

Deputy Registrar Raja Nor Adilla Raja Mahyaldin presided over the remand application by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

The suspects are aged between 36 and 45 and were detained at the Selangor MACC office in Shah Alam at about 4.45pm on Tuesday (June 8).

According to sources, the bribes were sought in exchange for approving loan applications that the applicants were not qualified to get.

"They were believed to have asked for and received bribes worth between 15% and 35% of the 110 loans worth about RM18mil.

"They were working at several of the bank's branches in the Klang Valley," the sources said.

It is learnt that MACC also seized RM69, 000 in cash along with several luxury watches and mobile phones. The total value of the seizure was more than RM100, 000.

When contacted, Selangor MACC director Datuk Alias Salim confirmed the arrests.
