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).
