Two policemen who have been charged for allegedly offering a bribe to one of their colleagues are to appear in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate Court today.



Sergeant Orel Ayres and Constable Oscar Beckford were charged on Friday for Reasonable Suspicion of Breaches of the Corruption Prevention Act and Attempting to Pervert the Course of Justice.



The policemen are attached to the Portmore Police Station.



The Major Organized Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA) says they allegedly solicited a sum of money from a serving member of the Jamaica Constabulary Force in order to dispose of a case file which implicated him.



A report was made to MOCA and following investigations, both men were arrested during a sting operation in which a sum of money was collected.
