KOTA KINABALU- The Sabah Government will not compromise on any lack of integrity and unlawful acts among government officers in
positions of authority.
Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman said to this end, the state government expected the relevant authorities to take action against four immigration officers arrested in Lahad Datu on suspicion of giving dubious long-term social visit passes to foreigners to stay in the state.
“If found guilty, the maximum penalty must be imposed so it will act as a deterrent to others,” he said in a statement here today.
He was commenting on the arrest of the immigration officers on Monday, following complaints that Pakistanis had been getting dubious long-term social visit passes to stay in the state.
The suspects, aged between 29 and 56 are attached to the Lahad Datu Immigration Department.
They have been remanded for a week since Monday to facilitate investigations under Section 17(a) of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Act 2009 for soliciting bribes.- BERNAMA
