Yansen Feng and three other accomplices will be facing charges of corruption when they appear in the Randburg Magistrates court on Monday.
This is consequent after Feng solicited a gratification from the investigating officer whilst he was appearing on a wildlife trafficking offence last week Thursday.
He allegedly negotiated with the investigating officer to grant him bail and offered R100 000 as gratuity. An approved operation was conducted, wherein Feng and three of his accomplices were arrested. The money which was intended as kickback to the officer was confiscated.
It was established that the suspects were allegedly planning to rob the police once the transaction was made. Assistance from the SAPS Task Force was solicited to ensure that the plot failed. Further investigation revealed more money on the suspects which was seized. The accused will face charges of corruption.
