Justice Azman Husin ruled that an element to show Asst Supt Sydney Clyde Jeremiah, 53, agreed to accept the bribe was not proven.
“Based on these grounds, I therefore maintain the acquittal by the Sessions Court here and dismiss the appeal by the prosecution,” he said on Friday.
ASP Jeremiah was charged with receiving a RM2,000 bribe from used clothing trader Mohd Khusaifil, 38, as an inducement to release Hoi Chee Kin, 31, from the offence of offering sex services.
He was alleged to have committed the offence at at Level 8 of the Dang Wangi IPD at about 3.30pm on Oct 26, 2007.
