Malaysiakini - Umno to face bribery charges

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 20 – Three people, including an Umno division vice-head in Perak, will be charged in court on Thursday with offering bribes during the party's divisional elections last November.

A statement from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in Putrajaya today said that the vice-head would be charged with offering a RM300 bribe to someone during a divisional election in the state.

The other two were agents in Pahang and Malacca. Each would be charged with offering a RM200 bribe to someone to elect the candidate for the post of division head.

The statement said all three would be charged under section 10 (b) of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2008. – Bernama
