Bravo! Kumawu Police Refused Bribe

Listen to article

Two KIA vehicles of registration numbers AS 5933 Y (White) and AS 8650 W (Blue) have been impounded by the Kumawu Police and the Forestry Department on 2nd May, 2008. The vehicles were intercepted when the police and the Forestry office were tipped off that they were carrying stolen teak logs. The teak trees had been felled from the forestry's land situated at a few kilometres from Drobonso. The perpetrators of the crime had carried out their nefarious activity under the cover of darkness.

The mini-trucks have been conveyed to the Forestry's quarters and have had all their tyres deflated. Both trucks are full of eight-foot size teak logs which had been illegally lumbered. All attempts to bribe the police and the forestry workers have proved futile. The drivers of both trucks, who are yet to disclose the identities of their clients are awaiting further action and likely prosecution at the Kumawu District court.
