Senior Sergeant Terry with the K100,000 bribery money 
Four persons have been arrested including a policeman whilst a second policeman is expected to be arrested soon over another attempt to bribe police investigator Senior Sergeant Apollos Terry with K100,000.00 in cash.

Senior Sergeant Terry, the Officer in Charge of the Gordons Minor Crimes Unit is currently heading an investigation into a suspected human trafficking, uttering of government documents and other related transnational crimes including a suspected visa and passport racket.
Only early this month a Chinese national, Zhiyuan Cui, also known as Aaron, of Shandon Province, China, was arrested and charged when he allegedly tried to bribe Senior Sergeant Terry with K10,000.00 in cash. Aaron is the managing director of A & D Consultancy Limited, a PNG registered passport and visa agent.
In this latest bribery attempt, a man from the Central Province allegedly gave S/Sgt Terry the K100,000.00 all in K100.00 notes and allegedly asked him to drop the case against Aaron Cui. Apollos restrained the Central Province man and told him to call the person who gave him the money and arrange for a meeting. The person (named) came and was in the company of Aaron Cui. All have been detained and currently being interviewed and are expected to be charged soon.
During the interview the suspects alleged that two police detectives (named) had solicited K50,000.00 in cash from them to help stop the case. They were allegedly given K50,000.00 last week. Apollo’s team arrested one of the policeman who denied the allegation. He had K500.00 in his pocket. He was locked up at the Boroko cells and K6,000.00 cash was found at his residence at the Bagita Police Barracks in the NCD during a search.
