    Prosecutors yesterday arraigned a senior Immigration and National Registration Department (INRD) officer to face two graft charges.

    INRD Senior Chief Immigration Officer Seruji bin Haji Setia, 52, is alleged to have received just over BND2,000 in carpet gifts from Daiecharm Décor, a company connected with the official function of the defendant, being the Head of Work Pass Section at the department, in January and April.

    Preliminary investigations by the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) showed that the defendant, who at the time of the commission of the offences was a public servant, had on January 9 obtained without payment three rolls of carpets with an estimated value of BND1,420 from Daiecharm Décor.

    In April, the defendant had again obtained without payment two more carpets with an estimated value of BND890 from the same company.

    Deputy Public Prosecutor Rozaimah binti Abdul Rahman informed the court that the ACB is further probing the case. Senior Magistrate Hajah Ervy Sufitriana binti Haji Abdul Rahman ordered the defendant remanded and adjourned the case for further mention on October 31.
