IPOH: The state Immigration Department detained eight Indonesian women with fake Malaysian identity cards at a budget hotel in Jalan C.M. Yusuff here. 

Its director Datuk Ishak Mohamed said the women, aged between 22 and 30, were being detained for entering Malaysia without valid passes or permits. 

He said the women, who were arrested in an anti-vice raid on Thursday, produced Malaysian ICs with addresses in Sabah and Sarawak when asked for proof of identification. 

“Doubting the authenticity of the identity cards, they were taken to the National Registration Department where it was confirmed that the cards were fakes. 

“They later admitted that they had obtained the cards from an agent and that they had come from Sulawesi,” said Ishak.
