JOHOR BARU: A 42-year-old assistant mechanical engineer attached to the Royal Malaysian Police Technical Academy in Bakri was detained by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) for allegedly soliciting and accepting RM700,000 in bribes from one of the academy's suppliers since three years ago.


The suspect who lives in Merlimau, Melaka, was detained by MACC enforcement officers who came knocking at his door at 6.30am today.


Johor MACC director Datuk Azmi Alias, who confirmed the arrest in a statement, said the suspect is being investigated for soliciting and accepting bribes for getting a supplies and services work contract for one of the academy's suppliers.


He was alleged to have solicited a sum of RM700,000 as a reward from the supplier between 2014 until 2016.


During the raid, the MACC team found RM32,000 in cash stored in a biscuit tin in the suspect's house.




The agency also seized jewellery and a Toyota Prado.




The case is investigated under Section 16(a)(b) of the MACC Act 2009. Under the act, a person can be fined up to five times the amount of the bribe money or RM10,000, whichever is higher, and can be jailed up to 20 years, upon conviction.




The suspect will be taken to the Segamat court house tomorrow for a remand extension request to facilitate investigations.
