Yesterday, we were in Ipoh when our car was stopped by the police for allegedly being heavily tinted.

Our car is very old and we got it with the original tinted film.

At the time, our parents and children were in the car when the policeman approached us.

To our shock, he asked us if we wanted to settle the matter for an amount.

I managed to record the entire conversation, including the policeman's face.

When he noticed me filming the incident, he began screaming at me and even threatened me.

I still have the video. The whole incident was very disappointing and in the end, we did not give him any money.

I want to post the video on Facebook, but my husband's face was obvious.

I was to report it to the police, but not sure who to trust.


When contacted, an officer from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission urged Candy to contact them either via their hotline of email and lodge a report. They ensured Candy that all information will be confidential and they will conduct a thorough investigation.
