MACC arrests Pahang OCPD over RM1mil bribery

KUALA LUMPUR: Graft busters have detained a district police chief in Pahang for allegedly accepting more than RM1mil in bribes for protecting entertainment outlets and massage parlours.

Sources said the 53-year-old senior policeman was detained on Tuesday (June 6).

The OCPD was suspected of receiving more than RM1mil in bribes from 2017 until last year.

"The bribes were in exchange for providing protection to unlicensed entertainment outlets and massage parlours in the particular district to ensure that no action was taken by the authorities against such premises," the source said.

Pahang Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) director Hairuzam Amin confirmed the arrest when contacted.

"We are investigating the case under Section 16(a) of the MACC Act 2009," he said without elaborating.
