Only a couple days in the past, four police officers were accused of extorting a foreign worker in Cheras. What’s so bad and infuriating about it is that the innocent man was forced to admit that he had drugs on him, then having to pay RM5,000 to these four cops.
This case has caused a lot of locals to be furious as it showcased the sheer corruption of the men in blue who are supposed to be the very ones who keep our country peaceful. Not to mention the injustice the poor foreign worker had to go through.
One Twitter user, Shaz Johor shared that this isn’t the primary time such a case has occurred. In actual fact, it occurs so regularly whereas we’re going about our every day lives. He wrote,
“Final time, my Nepali cleaner advised me that he would carry solely RM5 to work, simply so he wouldn’t get ‘pau’ by the cops.”
Dah 2019 dah baru nak keluar berita. Kisah ni berlaku sejak turun-temurun rasanya.
My Nepali cleaner dulu sanggup pergi kerja bawak rm5 je sebab tak nak kena pau dgn polis dia cakap. https://t.co/TWaxphjLZL

These employees fork out hundreds of Ringgit to return right here to work hoping to earn more cash however they’d be conned by their company. After they lastly get a job and sufficient cash to ship again to their household, then they’re confronted with cops who blackmail them. I heard this story from themselves. Pity them.”
Tak semua polis camtu tapi tak boleh nafikan benda ni kerap berlaku. These employees dah la keluarkan duit beribu untuk cari kerja tapi kena tipu dengan ejen. Dah dapat kerja & kumpul duit nak bagi kat keluarga, kena pau pulak. Heard it from themselves. Pity them
