Other News & ViewsCompiled by CHLOE YEOH
VIETNAMESE sex workers are now the favourites among locals, Kosmo! reported.
This new-found interest has been attributed to their alluring physique and better hospitality.
They have also been compared to sex workers from China, who are noted to be more “choosy” about their clients, based on appearance or age.
On the other hand, Vietnamese sex workers were found to be less choosy, so long as their clients were willing to pay between RM100 and RM200.
“Vietnamese prostitutes come here under the pretense of studying in fields such as beauty and tourism,” said Bukit Aman anti-vice, gambling and secret societies division head SAC Datuk Abdul Jalil Hassan.
According to him, there were even those who entered the country on their own and would find clients in reflexology centres and massage parlours.
> Permanent security guards have been placed near ATM machines in Alor Gajah in addition to CCTV cameras to enforce both safety and security measures in banks, reported Sinar Harian.
“By having permanent guards, hopefully we can cut down on the number of robbery attempts on ATM machines,” Deputy Home Minister Datuk Abu Seman Yusop said, referring to the recent ATM theft at a Bank Rakyat branch in Masjid Tanah.
He said the cameras alone were not enough to guarantee safety.
> A black plastic bag containing a Molotov cocktail was allegedly thrown by an African man along Jalan Tun Razak, Kuala Lumpur, at 5pm on Tuesday, injuring a 27-year-old woman when it exploded in front of her.
The victim, known only as Shirlie, had been with her friends when the man walked behind them, carrying what they assumed was a take-out meal, reported Harian Metro.
“He suddenly ran towards us from behind and threw the package, before it exploded right in front of me,” claimed Shirlie, adding that the man had suffered a leg injury from the blast. He escaped into a nearby hotel.
Shirlie suffered injuries to her leg while two of her friends suffered injuries on their right arms.
