KUANTAN: The Pahang Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has arrested two police officers and a policeman over bribery allegations involving a district police chief (OCPD) in the state.
In a statement, the MACC said two inspectors, aged 37 and 38, and a corporal, 43, were arrested together with a 37-year-old man this evening after giving their statements at the MACC office here on Thursday (June 8).
On Tuesday, the MACC arrested a district police chief in the state over allegations of receiving bribes of between RM20,000 and RM50,000 monthly, and is estimated to have received more than RM1mil from 2017 to 2022.
The bribes are believed to be an inducement not to act against entertainment and massage centres in the district.
The MACC also said they arrested two Immigration officers, aged 41 and 49, to assist investigations into allegations of accepting bribes from massage centre owners to speed up the process of renewing work permits for foreign workers.
Pahang MACC director Hairuzam Mohmad Amin@Hamim confirmed the arrests but declined to comment further. – Bernama
