KUALA LUMPUR, July 22nd – Corruption investigators will demand to detain a deputy prosecutor (DPP) and a private lawyer who was arrested on charges of receiving bribes at the Kuala Kubu Baru court last week the expiration of their first five days order remand today.
Depuy, chief commissioner for operations of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), Datuk Seri Azam Baki, said that six policemen arrested in the tribunal court along with the two lawyers were released.
"Our officers will try to request a court order today for the attorney and the DPP," he said.
Azam said that the police officers who were released were basic personnel, going from corporals to sergeants.
The detainees were believed to take bribes to obtain the release of illegal immigrants held by the authorities of Kuala Kubu Baru.
MACC agents were reported to have found RM17,500 on the lawyer during his arrest.
A research by the anti-graft organization of the DPP office at the Sessions Court of Kuala Kubu Baru also revealed a deposit of money totaling RM 82,000.
