DAPAT Vista (M) Sdn Bhd, Bank Islam Malaysia Bhd and Bank Muamalat Malaysia Bhd signed Collaboration Agreements to launch Malaysia’s pioneer digital bail payment solution, eJamin.
eJamin is the first digital bail payment solution in Malaysia and South East Asia that provides bailors the convenience of expedient and efficient payment to ensure the quick release of those in remand.
eJamin allows bailors to post bail through mobile devices and desktops. Bailors will no longer be required to go through the lengthy and time-consuming process of traveling between the court and the bank to open a surety account. The convenience of eJamin allows bail payment to be made instantaneously via FPX online banking. What used to take four to five hours can now be done within thirty minutes.
Taking into consideration the bailor’s state of mind in the challenging situation of having to post bail, a simple and straightforward navigation interface was created. 30% bailors are now using the eJamin system in certain courts. This is a clear indication that Malaysians are welcoming the practice of performing crucial transactions via online payment systems.
Bailors are required to complete an electronic form on eJamin with both their required personal details and that of the Accused’s. Once payment is made through the FPX online interchange, bail money is automatically routed to the designated Bank Islam or Bank Muamalat accounts. At the close of the case, bail money will be refunded to bailor’s bank account via eJamin within a reasonably short time.
Present at the event were Encik Sabri Rahman, Executive Director of DAPAT Vista (M) Sdn Bhd, Encik Mohd Muazzam Mohamed, Chief Executive Officer of Bank Islam Malaysia Bhd and Encik Khairul Kamarudin, Chief Executive Officer of Bank Muamalat Malaysia Bhd.
“The bailing process can be a long and tedious procedure especially during this stressful period. With this in mind, eJamin provides bailors 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,” said Encik Sabri Rahman, Executive Director of DAPAT Vista (M) Sdn Bhd.
“This collaboration is a key enabler in expanding Bank Islam’s service to a wider network. We are honoured to contribute to the digitalisation of the Malaysian judiciary system in expediating the bailing process through eJamin. This initiative is also part of Bank Islam’s digital journey in providing our customers the efficiency of cashless transaction that is seamless, quick and safe. eJamin echoes our belief in assuring trust, delivering value to the market,” said Encik Mohd Muazzam Mohamed, Chief Executive Officer of Bank Islam Malaysia Bhd.
“Being the only two partnering banks with eJamin, Bank Muamalat is delighted to advance our banking services in speeding the bailing process through technology-led convenience. This is in line with our mission to stand to improve the lives of our customers,” said Encik Khairul Kamarudin, Chief Executive Officer of Bank Muamalat Malaysia Bhd.
The Signing Ceremony was witnessed by Yang Berbahagia Tan Sri Dato’ Mohd Desa bin Pachi and Yang Berbahagia Dato’ Ibrahim Mohd Nor from Television Airtime Services Sdn Bhd.
