A student from Universiti Tun Abdul Razak (UNITAR) Kelana Jaya Campus force to pay RM50 for the traffic offense that they have done. They traffic police officer force him to pay RM50 instead of issuing summonses. Although the University student admit his offense and wanted a summon notice than giving bribe to the officer, the officer rejected his request and continuously forced him to pay RM50.
The whole incident happened yesterday evening, when the student did not wear helmet and rode motorcycle. A policeman caught the student and straight away asks for RM50. When the student refuse to pay, the officer said he wanted the sum of money then only he will let the student go from the place. The police declined to receive it directly through the hand, so he had ordered the student to put the money at the back box of the officer’s motor.
And at the same time, the student brilliantly captured few pictures for evidence to lodge report later on, the pictures taken when the police ask over money for him. The most shameful part of the incident was when the students warned the policeman that he will lodge an official report to police on what had happened, the officer decided to return his money back.
This is the shameful attitude of the most Malaysian police officers. If this trend continues, we are going to live in a failed nation of course. Destroy the corruption before it destroys your nation! The student did a very good job as a responsible citizen. Although he had done traffic offense he did not wanted to escape from legal punishment and daringly face the law.
