KANGAR – Two senior officers of the Perlis Fire and Rescue Department were ordered to be in remand for seven days from today for alleged corruption.
The remand order was issued by Kangar Magistrate Court registrar Monica Gasiah following an application from Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) deputy public prosecutor Anis Sofiah Che Hakim.
