A motorist stopped by a traffic policemen recently recorded his attempted to bribe the policemen on a smartphone. The pictures have since been circulated on the several blogs.
One of the images showed the man being issued a summons by the policeman while another showed a torn RM20 note, together with the driver’s IC and his driver’s licence on the police car.
According to the comments posted under the photographs, the driver had allegedly tried to bribe the policeman with the money while recording the act on his handphone.
The policeman then issued a summons to the driver after allegedly tearing the RM20 note as he was angry with him for wanting to record the act.
It couldn’t be confirmed where the incident took place. Federal Traffic chief Senior Asst Comm Mohd Fuad Abdul Latiff told The Star, the man can lodge a police report if he was unhappy of the incident.
“I have given a directive to my officers – if they are offered bribes, they should advise the person that it is wrong to do so. If they insist, the police officers should arrest the offender,” he said.
SAC Mohd Fuad said police were also investigating the people behind a Facebook page claiming to settle summonses at a discounted rate.
