Malaysian firm DAPAT Vista (M) has partnered with Bank Islam Malaysia and Bank Muamalat Malaysia to roll-out a digital bail payment solution.
The solution, dubbed eJamin, will enable bailors make digital payments for the release of those in custody.
eJamin enables payments through mobile devices and desktops via FPX online banking. It eliminates the need for the bailor to travel between the court and the bank to open a surety account for making such payments.
DAPAT Vista (M) executive director Encik Sabri Rahman said: “The bailing process can be a long and tedious procedure especially during this stressful period.
“With this in mind, eJamin provides bailor a convenient and smooth bail payment experience. Developed in compliance with the current judicial legal procedures, this collaboration doubles down on convenience to both bailors and accused.
“We are proud to be the first platform to seamlessly introduce digitalisation into the Malaysian judiciary digital bail payment system.”
In the new process, bailors are required to complete an electronic form on eJamin providing personal and accused’s details.
After the payment is made, the bail money is transferred to the assigned Bank Islam or Bank Muamalat accounts.
Once the case closes, the money will be refunded to bailor’s bank account.
Currently, eJamin is available in select courts. It is expected to be rolled out across all Malaysian courts by the end of this year.
