KANGAR: The Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) is ready to give its full cooperation to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) over the arrest of two enforcement personnel for allegedly receiving bribes.
Kuala Perlis Maritime Zone director Maritime Cmdr Mohd Hashim Mat Zain said MMEA viewed the matter seriously and would work with MACC to fight graft.
"There will be no compromise with any officers and personnel involved in this crime,” he said here on Monday (Feb 6).
It was reported earlier that two MMEA personnel and a fisherman had been remanded for six days until Wednesday (Feb 8) to assist in the investigation into a case of receiving monthly bribes.
Mohd Hashim said the two had been watched for some time, after he took the post last year.
Meanwhile, an MACC spokesman said more arrests will be made involving MMEA personnel and third parties. – Bernama
