Senior cop held, ex-officer under probe over graft

KUALA LUMPUR: A senior police officer was arrested yesterday while a former senior officer is under probe as the fight against graft in the force intensified.

Selangor Anti-Corruption Agency officers nabbed a superintendent attached to a district police headquarters yesterday after he turned up for questioning at the state ACA headquarters at 1pm.

He is alleged to have taken a RM75,000 bribe in return for not taking action against a vehicle theft syndicate.

It was learnt the matter was detected within the force and brought up to the police disciplinary board before being taken to the ACA....27/3/2008 nst.

BERITADARIGUNUNG: The other day Abdullah questioned the "index thing" when Malaysia seems to be slipping down the rank. Everyone knows, but no harm in sharing, it is not the little thousands that add up to the "index thing". In fact, the millions and billions per shot are the most worrying. Those billions are disturbing. Only Pak Lah comprehends and the rest can stay aside.
