Cops harass suspects for money

MALAYSIA - A royal Malaysian Police official at the Bukit Aman, Kuala Lumpur, headquarters said that five police personnel in Johor are being investigated for harassing crime suspects and being involved in a crime.

In the latest case several days ago, an inspector from the narcotics unit and three detectives were following up on a suspect who was involved in drug-related activity in Johor Baru.

The suspect lodged a police report alleging that the four officers had been harassing and extorting money from him, reported Malaysia's The Star.

Sources said investigations showed that the officers conducted checks on the suspect without filing the necessary reports or documents after they did not find any drugs on him.

The four were remanded.
