S'porean taxi driver fined for offering bribe

A Singaporean taxi driver was jailed a day and fined RM10,000 (S$3,900) after he pleaded guilty to offering a RM50 bribe to an officer from Malaysia's Public Land Transport Commission.

Ng Geok Hock, 55, committed the offence last month at the vehicle entry route to Singapore at the Sultan Iskandar Customs, Immigration and Quarantine Complex, Johor Baru, the New Straits Times reported.

He had offered the money as an inducement not to issue summons for not using the lane for taxis. Ng was unrepresented and paid the fine.
