Four Malacca cops remanded over 'payment for contraband' probe


Four police officers were remanded to assist in an investigation into allegations of receiving payment to supply contraband to detainees in police lock-ups.

The remand order against them was issued by magistrate Mazana Sinin at the Ayer Keroh Magistrate’s Court in Malacca.

The four, who hold the ranks of lance corporal and corporal and are aged 35 to 40, have been remanded for seven days, starting from today.

They are to assist investigations under Section 16(a)(B) of the MACC Act 2009.

The officers, attached to a police station in Alor Gajah, were alleged to have brought in supplies of banned items such as drugs, tobacco, and food to the detainees at the police station lock-ups.

It is understood they received wages between RM600 and RM9,000 through 20 transactions, conducted online and in cash, from 2019 to 2020.

All the suspects were arrested at the Malacca MACC office yesterday when they were called to have their statements recorded.

Meanwhile, Malacca MACC director Mohd Shahril Che Saad, when contacted, confirmed the arrest and said further investigations are ongoing.
