A National Anti-Drug Agency (AADK) and a travel agency employee were jointly charged in the Sessions Court here yesterday with three counts of bribery and another for impersonating a policeman last year.
Ezli Efifuddin Chik, 28, of the Langkawi branch AADK and Mohd Amzar Hashimi, 28, however, pleaded not guilty to all the charges.
On the first count, they were jointly charged with soliciting bribe of RM3,000 from one Mohammed Sharif Abdul Aziz Bhagad as an inducement that they would not take action against him after his urine allegedly tested positive for drug.
The offence was allegedly committed at Restoran Lazeez, Kompleks Kelana Mas, Kuah, Langkawi at about 9pm on June 23, 2013.
On the second charge, they were alleged to have received RM1,200 from one Syed Fakhraymoin Chisty as an inducement that they would not take action against Mohammed Sharif, whose urine allegedly tested positive for drug.
The offence was allegedly committed at 9.10pm at the same place and on the same day.
They were also charged with receiving RM1,800 from Mohammed Sharif for the same purpose at Lot 91, 92 and 93, Persiaran Mutiara 2 of the Kelana Mas Trade and Tourism Centre in Kuah at about 2.40pm on July 2, 2013.
Ezli Efifuddin and Mohd Amzar also faced an alternative charge with cheating Mohammed Sharif by impersonating as policemen from the narcotic division of the police district headquarters.
The offence was allegedly committed at Restoran Lazeez, Kompleks Kelana Mas, Kuah, at about 8.30pm on June 23, 2013.
Judge Mohd Rosli Osman offered the accused bail of RM10,000 each with one surety and set March 27 for mention.
