Three arrested for marriages that crossed the border

Three men were remanded in prison for five days after being accused of graft involving almost RM1.2mil and the registration of marriages between Malaysian couples on the other side without following prescribed procedures.

A source from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission says that the Magistrate Ana Rozana Mohd Nor issued the remand orders against the three after allowing a request by the agency in the Magistrate’s Court yesterday.

Sources said that the first suspect was a marriage registrar who was arrested on Tuesday between 4pm-7pm at his workplace, and the owner of the company and another person were arrested around 6pm at the MACC to record their statements.

Bernama reported that a source claimed the first suspect received more than RM1.18mil worth of bribes to allow a couple who had married in Thailand to register their marriage in Perlis’ religious department without following the prescribed procedure.

When contacted by the media, Mohd Nor Adha Ab Gani confirmed that arrest.
