Published on: Thursday, September 06, 2018

Kota Kinabalu: Four Road Transport Department (RTD) enforcement officials suspected of receiving bribes to issue driving licences have been remanded for six days.

Magistrate Afiq Agoes granted the remand order Wednesday on the four until Sept 10. MACC investigating officer Mohd Faliq Basiruddin said the four, aged between 26 and 30, were nabbed at the Malaysia Anti- Corruption Commission (MACC) office here on Tuesday (Sept 4).

He said the four, believed to have been active since 2017, are suspected of receiving between RM2,200 and RM3,000 for each licence issued. However, it is unclear how many licences have been issued and how much in bribe was collected because the police reports were lodged in Penang.

"The individuals applied for driver's licences in Penang, but the cards were issued from Sabah," he said.

Authorities first became suspicious when they started to find more and more licences for road users in Penang that were issued from Sabah.
