PUTRAJAYA, Oct 30 (Bernama) -- A senior police office with the title “Datuk”, who was remanded by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) for investigation in a corruption case involving more than RM100,000, was released today.
Magistrate Joanne Tan Yin Ying ordered the release of the 56-year-old senior assistant commissioner with bail of RM5,000 in one surety.
He was detained by MACC at 7.10 pm last Thursday when he went to give his statement at the commission’s headquarters here.
Based on media reports, the suspect, who is with Bukit Aman, was alleged to be asking for and receiving the money, in bribes, for a year since August last year as an inducement for not taking action against a corporal from Bukit Aman Traffic Investigation and Enforcement who was allegedly taking bribes for reducing traffic summons.
