3 people found guilty of bribing civil servants
KUALA LUMPUR: Three out of five people investigated by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) for bribing civil servants have been found guilty yesterday.
MACC Deputy Chief of Operation Datuk Azam Baki said out of the five individuals charged in courts in Sabah, Terengganu and Johor, three were sentenced after pleading guilty under Section 17(b) of the MACC Act 2009.
“In the Kuala Terengganu Sessions Court, V. Nanthakumar, 33, was jailed for a day and fined RM10,000 for attempting to bribe a policeman.
“In the Kota Kinabalu Sessions Court, Anallisa Mohd Jamil, 40, was jailed for a day and fined RM10,000 for attempting to bribe a policeman.
“Lorry driver Ng Jian Dar, 25, was sentenced by the Johor Baru Sessions Court to one day imprisonment and RM20,000 fine after pleading guilty to giving a RM300 bribe to a civil servant last year,” Azam said yesterday.
He said the commission would ensure that efforts would be taken in their investigations on graft committed by the givers and the receivers under the Act.
Azam said 14 people whom the commission was investigating had been charged in courts nationwide last week.
