A woman has been arrested after attempting to bribe a police officer to avoid being arrested.

The 42-year-old woman had offered Assistant Superintendent Chan Wai Hoong $10,000 to release her during an enforcement operation last Thursday (April 14).

ASP Chan and his team made checks on the woman in Middle Road.

The woman, suspected of participating in vice activities under the Women's Charter, repeatedly offered ASP Chan the sum of money as a bribe to release her.

The officer rejected the bribe and arrested her.

The case has been forwarded to the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB).

Anyone who attempts to bribe a police officer can be jailed up to five years and fined up to $100,000.
