Public officer in remand for corruption

GEORGE TOWN (BERNAMA) – A Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry (MDTCA) enforcement officer in Timur Laut was in remand for four days for alleged corruption involving MYR3,000.

The remand order, until May 17, was issued by Magistrate Tunku Intan Nadiah Tunku Mohammed Nazarin for investigation under Section 17(a) of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act.

The 48-year-old officer was arrested in Bayan Baru on Friday for allegedly accepting the money as inducement for action not to be taken against the complainant for the possession of subsidised liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) more than the permitted capacity.
