Speaking at a press conference today, Sarawak GOF commander SAC Datuk Khaw Kok Chin said the police team, led by ASP Norman Chendan, arrested five individuals including two others for offering bribes.

“Acting on information gathered prior to the raid, the team arrested five individuals including two men who had attempted to offer a bribe worth RM25,000 to the operation head as an assurance in avoiding any legal action,” he said.

Khaw said the police also seized two vessels estimated to be worth RM5 million.

“The case has been handed over to the Domestic Trade and Consumerism Ministry for them to investigate and take further action,” he said.
