Driver freed on RM100,000 bail
A van driver who was arrested by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) for alleged graft was released on bail yesterday after his remand expired.
The man was released on RM100,000 bail with one surety.
The release order was issued by magistrate Nik Isfahanie Tasnim Wan Ab Rahman.
The 32 year old was held in connection with a probe into a protection racket allegedly run by Melaka policemen.
He was escorted by a MACC officer, and was seen covering his face with his hands.
He was believed to have served as a middleman for several policemen by collecting protection money from illegal gambling dens and massage parlours in Melaka.
It was learnt that his bank account had been used to keep the money.
On May 19, he was remanded for six days to facilitate investigation and his remand was later extended for six more days.
