One of the worst problems we have within our justice system is bribery and corruption which often runs rampant within the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM).
Recently, a video of what appeared to be a police officer receiving something from a member of the public under suspicious circumstances went viral.
In the video, a pair of police officers could be seen walking around in public talking to a man in front of a shop lot.
Before the police officer walked away, he then shook hands with the man who appeared to be passing him something suspiciously.
It is unclear what was passed and what it was for.
Under police investigation
The video has since captured the attention of the police force. According to BERNAMA, the Sandakan District Police Headquarters (IPD) has confirmed receiving a complaint regarding the viral video clip on social media.
District Police Chief ACP Abdul Fuad Abdul Malek said an investigation by the Sandakan IPD Integrity and Standard Compliance Division was underway to identify if there was any wrongdoing by the policeman concerned.
“If there is proof, the police will not hesitate to take stern action against the policeman involved as well as the giver.”
Abdul Fuad urged members of the public who have information related to the incident to contact the head of Integrity and Standard Compliance Division of Sandakan IPD, ASP Mohammed Noor Zaid Zainuddin, at 013-3811239.
