SINGAPORE - A Malaysian man has been sentenced to four weeks' jail for trying to bribe a traffic police officer here.

Sang Jia Weng, a construction worker working in Singapore, was stopped by Staff Sergeant Zulkifli Bin Dzahari for failing to secure his helmet strap while riding his motorcycle on Jan 11.

Sang then stuffed three $10 notes into Staff Sergeant Zulkifli's pants pocket and asked him not to issue a traffic summons. He was arrested immediately.

He was charged in court on April 19 with one count of corruptly offering gratification, and was sentenced today (May 4).
