Man charged with bribing Sats manager for passenger info


A freelance airport agent was charged on Friday with 12 counts of giving bribes totalling $5.080 to a former duty terminal manager.

Adbul Falik Abdul Latiff, 50, allegedly gave bribes of mostly $500 each time to Abdul Rahim Jumaat, then a manager with the Singapore Airport Terminal Services (Sats), in exchange for information of passengers checking in without any baggage.

The alleged offences occurred at Changi Airport Terminal 2 between Nov 6, 2007 and April 29, 2008.

Abdul Rahim, 46, has been dealt with. In July this year, he was sentenced to two weeks' jail, fined $36,000 and ordered to pay a penalty of $5,080.
