Solicitation by government official


Active member
This may sound weird but it is happening here that some government officials that includes the cops would ask for donation or something for gifts or anything from the business offices in their area. You can imagine the solicitation that is happening during the Christmas season that business offices had to be prepared with cash in envelopes otherwise their business may be affected.

When a government official gives a hint of solicitation, it is like having a pain in the neck which you cannot avoid. The best recourse, according to shrewd businessmen, is to negotiate with the government official. If they ask 50,000 then you can compromise for half of it. That is better than rejecting the hint and suffer the consequences of a rejected business permit to operate and other permits like sanitation.
