KLANG: In the day it is a coffee shop serving coffee, toasted bread and half-boiled eggs. 

But at night the brew is different.  

Customers are served coffee or beer by pretty young foreign girls in skimpy outfits, who offer sex for a minimum of RM128. 

But their illegal activities of three months came to a halt when Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo personally headed an anti-vice raid at the coffee shop in Kapar yesterday. 

The raid on the coffee shop, which is about 300m from Dewan Ahmad Razali, saw the arrest of 38 foreign “guest relations officers.” 

Aged between 17 and 28, twenty-eight of the women were Indonesians while 10 were Thais.  

Selangor local government chairman Datuk Mokhtar Ahmad Dahlan, state deputy police chief Datuk Mohd Fauzi Shaari, state financial secretary Datuk Mohd Adzib Mohd Isa and Klang Municipal Council (MPK) president Mohd Sharif Yusof joined the task force that conducted the raid. 

Mokhtar, who gave a briefing on the raid yesterday morning at MPK, said they wanted to weed out prostitution, illegal gambling dens and video arcades.  

“All local authorities in the state are carrying out operations to raid entertainment outlets suspected of employing foreigners as prostitutes. 

“So far, the police have detained about 200 foreigners working as prostitutes in the guise of GROs at coffee shops and entertainment outlets,” he added. 

Later, Mokhtar checked on the progress of the landscaping works being done in Klang in preparation for the coronation and installation of the Sultan of Selangor.
