Two senior enforcement officers on remand for receiving RM30,000 bribe


KUALA TERENGGANU: Two senior officers of an enforcement agency and the wife of one of them have been remanded for five days from Monday (June 24) for allegedly accepting a bribe of RM30,000 to help release three men who were arrested in connection with a drug case three years ago.

The remand order for the suspects, aged between 36 and 41, was issued by Senior Assistant Registrar Yuhanis Mohd Roslan following an application by the Terengganu Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) at the Magistrate's Court on Monday (June 24).

According to sources, they were being investigated under Section 16(a)(B) of the MACC Act.

The three suspects were arrested on Sunday (June 23) at the Terengganu MACC office.

The two officers were alleged to have asked for and accepted a bribe of RM30,000 in 2021 from a man in return for releasing his friends who were arrested for a drug-related offence.

One of the suspects, who works in Kedah, and his wife are believed to have used the bribe money for online gambling.

The investigation also found that the money was believed to have been deposited into a third-party account before it was transferred to the woman's account. - Bernama
