SHAH ALAM: Six bank staffers, including officers, were detained by graft busters for allegedly soliciting and receiving bribes from personal loan applicants involving 110 transactions amounting to RM18mil.

The suspects, aged between 36 and 45, were detained at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) office in Shah Alam at about 4.45pm on Tuesday (June 8).

According to sources, the bribes were in exchange for approving the loan applications despite the applicants not qualified for the loans.

“They were believed to have asked and received bribes between 15% and 35% of the 110 loans worth about RM18mil.

“The personnel were working at several of the bank’s branches in the Klang Valley,” sources said.

It is learnt that the MACC also seized RM69, 000 cash along with several luxury watches and mobile phones. The whole seizure was worth more than RM100, 000.
