JOHOR BARU: Six people, including a woman sales adviser from a local bank, were detained by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in the past two days for allegedly soliciting and receiving RM50,000 to process a teacher’s personal loan.

The commission, in a statement, said three men and a woman were arrested in Rompin in Pahang and Permas Jaya, here, on Tuesday for their alleged involvement in soliciting the bribe.

The MACC obtained a seven-day remand until Aug 15 from the Johor Baru magistrates court to detain the four to assist investigations.

Another two women were arrested from a house in Permas Jaya yesterday.

Johor MACC director Datuk Azmi Alias told the New Straits Times one of the two women arrested yesterday was a sales adviser at a bank located in Skudai, near here.

The MACC obtained a five-day remand order for the two women from the same court today.

Those arrested were aged between 29 to 33. The teacher is a 38-year-old man.

Azmi said initial checks showed that a syndicate may be involved in the operation.

“Preliminary investigations by the MACC investigation team and a team from the integrity unit of the financial institution involved in the case revealed that the suspects had been allegedly soliciting bribes for managing personal loans involving a sum of RM190,000,” said the statement.

The case is being investigated under Section 16(a)(A) of the MACC Act 2009 which provides for a jail term of up to 20 years or five times the value of the amount solicited, whichever is higher.

Azmi called on the public to provide information to the MACC if they had encountered the same modus operandi.
