On 14 April 2016 at about 1.30pm, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Chan Wai Hoong and his team of officers from Central Division were conducting enforcement operations at Middle Road when they conducted a check on a 42-year-old woman.
During the check, the woman repeatedly offered ASP Chan a sum of $10,000/- as an inducement to let her go. The officer rejected the bribe and arrested her for attempting to bribe a Police Officer. The case for attempting to bribe a Police Officer has been referred to the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) for investigation. The woman is also being investigated by the Police for suspected involvement in vice activities under the provisions of the Women’s Charter.
Commenting on this incident, ASP Chan said, “I am committed to my duties as a police officer and the values of integrity and loyalty are important to me.
