Bernama understands that the bus engine caught fire on the Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway here, forcing the MACC officers to transfer the suspects into 10 cars.

With the help of the traffic police escorting them, all 10 cars reached the court’s compound at 10.40am, just 10 minutes later than scheduled.

George Town Sessions Court senior assistant registrar Nurfadrina Zulkhairi then ordered all the suspects to be remanded for seven days until April 23 to assist in the probe into their alleged involvement in corruption by protecting lorry drivers who committed various traffic offences around Penang.
