New Straits Times - - News -

ALOR STAR: The Kedah Malaysian Bor­der Se­cu­rity Agency (Aksem) has ini­ti­ated an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into a video record­ing of its per­son­nel de­mand­ing bribes from for­eign work­ers at the Malaysia-Thai bor­der check­point in Bukit Kayu Hi­tam.

Aksem com­man­der Ab­dul Latif Ab­dul Rah­man said his side would not com­pro­mise should the in­ves­ti­ga­tion prove that the claim was true.

“I have seen the video and the per­son­nel was speak­ing with a north­ern di­alect, but we are still prob­ing.”

In the 1-minute 54-sec­ond video, a per­son­nel in Aksem uni­form was recorded ask­ing RM10 each from Thai work­ers trav­el­ling in a car at the bor­der check­point.
