PUTRAJAYA: The Road Transport Department (JPJ) will investigate in collaboration with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) on the allegations of a social media influencer named Azrul Affandi Sobry on illegal driving licences or "lesen terbang".
The JPJ sid the matter is being taken seriously and the individual would be called to get further statements and assist in the investigation.
"We would like to stress that we will not compromise on any form of misconduct involving JPJ employees if it is true what was said by Azrul Affandi Sobry where JPJ enforcement members are involved in selling illegal licences," it said in a statement here on Saturday (Dec 4).
The JPJ said to date, a series of MACC investigations had been conducted, for example in 2018.
Through a post on social media, Azrul Affandi claimed that there were JPJ officers who were directly involved in selling driving licences illegally by accepting bribes even though (candidates) did not pass the test set at the driving institute.- Bernama
