The two policemen charged for allegedly attempting to solicit funds from an individual who was being questioned in relation to an ongoing investigation by the Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA) have had their bail extended.

Corporal Omar Lobban and Constable Remore Thomas, who are both attached to MOCA, appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court yesterday.

They are charged with breaches of the Corruption Prevention Act.

Corporal Lobban and Constable Thomas are to return to court on November 18.

Thomas was arrested last month as he allegedly attempted to solicit funds from an individual who was being questioned in relation to an ongoing MOCA investigation.

His alleged accomplice, Corporal Lobban, was arrested following continued investigations.
