GEORGE TOWN: ใบอนุญาตแรงงานต่างด้าว Five men, including a Pakistani, believed to be agents who allegedly paid off officials to obtain temporary foreign workers permits (PLKS) without having to go through the stipulated procedures, have been remanded here and in Ipoh. The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) yesterday obtained an order from the Penang magistrate’s court to detain two of them, aged 38 and 46, until May 2. It is learnt that the two men were arrested on Thursday at Chai Leng Park in Prai. MACC arrested three others, including the Pakistani, aged between 46 and 57, in Ipoh and Batu Gajah on Thursday. Assistant Registrar Puteri Nordina Kamalaudin gave the remand order when they were brought to the Ipoh magistrate’s court. They were among 12 people arrested by anti-graft officers in a sting operation in Penang, Selangor, Johor and Perak that day. Two of the suspects are women. It was reported that the MACC arrested the 12, who acted as middlemen or agents to renew the PLKS, through information obtained from e-government services provider MyEG Services Bhd. It was learnt that these so-called agents paid between RM50 and RM700 per application as an incentive to secure the release of the PLKS for foreigners without having to go through the stipulated procedures. Foreigners, not yet employed, would then be able to look for jobs using the PLKS. Only employers are allowed to collect the permits upon submission of the applications online.

Abedin had announced her separation from Weiner clicking here last summer after the latest round of explicit messages emerged, including an image of Weiner's crotch as he lay in bed with their young son. The controversy over Clinton's use of a private email server while she was U.S. secretary of state dogged her throughout the campaign. Trump accused Clinton of endangering national security by exposing classified information to potential hacking. In testimony to Congress two weeks ago, Comey said he felt "mildly nauseous" at the suggestion his actions may have swayed the election, but added that he had no regrets. Trump fired Comey days later amid the FBI's probe into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russia to defeat Clinton, an allegation the president has denied. Weiner, who served parts of New York City for 12 years in the U.S. House of Representatives, resigned in 2011 after an explicit photograph was posted on his Twitter account. He initially claimed his account had been hacked but eventually acknowledged he had sent the image as well as inappropriate messages to several women. Two years later, he announced a run for New York City mayor but dropped out of the race when more explicit messages became public.
