MBSA shuts two premises

MBSA enforcement officers carting away seized items from one of the two premises raided.

TWO businesses in Section 7 were shut by Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) for allegedly being run by the foreign workers of the local licence holders.

MBSA Corporate Communications head Shahrin Ahmad said council officers checked two premises in the area and found that both were being operated by foreigners.

“There was no sign of the local business licence holder at the premises to show that they were running the place,” he said.

He disclosed that a number of items

were seized at the premises which included electrical goods, foodstuff and gas cylinders.

The checks, he said, were carried out based on complaints that the businesses were run by foreign workers.

“The action taken is under MBSA’s Trade, Business and Industrial Licensing By-Law 2007. The raid was jointly conducted with the police,” he added.

Shahrin reminded all trade licence holders in the city to run their own businesses and to avoid passing it on to others to run it without proper approval.

Last month, MBSA shut eight eateries for the same reason and issued over 50 compounds to restaurants around the city that did not comply with the rules.

The city council is constantly carrying out checks on business premises to ensure adherence to all rules and regulations.
