Police have arrested a 35-year-old Vietnamese woman who offered a SGD $330 bribe to two CID officers on 25 October 2010 .

Officers from the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) were conducting anti-vice operations at Lorong 12 Geylang when they came across a Vietnamese woman who was with a man in a room. Suspecting that the woman may be involved in vice-related activities, Senior Staff Sergeant Azman Hasim and Sergeant Tan Yi Li proceeded to conduct further interviews with the woman.

During the interview, the woman pleaded with the CID officers not to take action against her. She then took out a stack of SGD $10 notes from her purse and offered it to the two officers. As the officers were about to arrest her for offering the bribe, the woman added another three pieces of SGD $50 notes to the original stack of notes and made a second offer of bribe to the CID officers.

Without hesitation, the CID officers placed the woman under arrest for bribery. Cash amounting to SGD $330 which was offered as bribe was also seized. The case has since been referred to the Corrupt Practices Investigations Bureau (CPIB) for follow-up investigations.
