SIX men, including two enforcement officers, have been arrested for allegedly taking bribes to pass candidates sitting for their goods driving licence (GDL) tests through a driving institute in Negri Sembilan, according to sources.
The sources said apart from the two enforcement officers, the other suspects were instructors and staff of the driving institute.
It is learnt that five of them have been remanded after senior assistant registrar Khairunnisa Kasa allowed an application by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) at the Special Remand Court in Seremban today.
Four of the suspects have been remanded for five days, one for three days and another was released on an MACC bail on health grounds.
The suspects, aged between 35 and 65, were arrested at the Negri Sembilan MACC office between 5pm and 6pm yesterday.
They are suspected to have received bribes of RM300 to RM650 from each applicant taking the GDL test.
State MACC director Awangkok Ahmad Taufik Putra Awg Ismail, when contacted, confirmed the arrests.
He said the case is being investigated under sections 16(a)(A) and 17(a) of the MACC Act 2009. – Bernama, June 24, 2022.
