Datuk taxi company owner to be charged for soliciting, accepting bribes worth RM95,000

PUTRAJAYA: A taxi company owner will be charged in court for allegedly soliciting and accepting bribes amounting to RM95,000.

The suspect, a Datuk in his 50s, had sought RM95,000 from an individual to help “settle” an ongoing corruption trial that the latter is facing.

“The trial is ongoing at the Court of Appeal.

“The suspect had asked for the money, claiming that it would be used to pay off the Deputy Public Prosecutor and an officer at the Attorney General's Chambers who were conducting the case.

“From the amount demanded, the suspect is said to have RM10,000 transferred to his bank account and another RM35,000 in cash,” said a source.

The suspect is expected to face several charges at the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court on Wednesday (Aug 4) and Shah Alam Sessions Court on Thursday (Aug 5).

The source said the suspect will be charged under the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2009.
