The Anti-Corruption Commission said on Thursday it had filed bribery charges against the former labour attaché in Thailand and two Myanmar nationals living in the kingdom.

In charges filed at North Dagon police station in Yangon on Wednesday, the agency accused the three men of receiving 961,600 baht (K48.13 million/US$32,000) from 12 companies and 16 overseas employment agencies in exchange for signing demand letters.

The agency said it received information that U San Maung Oo misused his position to demand bribe money from the companies while serving as labour attaché from June 2017 to August 2019.

It said it formed a team to investigate the allegations by interviewing the companies that filed the complaints, confiscating documents, and checking bank accounts with the Central Bank of Myanmar.

It also sought the help of Thai authorities in gathering evidence, including information about bank accounts in Thailand.

According to the agency, the suspect collected 574,300 baht in bribes from 12 companies after facilitating the signing of demand letters. He also received 3.87 million baht from 16 foreign employment agencies.

It also filed charges against U San Maung Oo’s two alleged cohorts.
