PENANG: Six high-class Uzbek call girls and two pimps were rounded up during an anti-vice operation at a hotel in Kinta Lane here on Sunday. 

State CID chief Senior Asst Comm (II) Abdul Samah Mat said two men, believed to be clients, were also arrested during the 8pm Ops Noda

“We have been monitoring the Uzbek women for some time after receiving information that they were charging RM300 for each session. 

“Bookings are made through the pimps’ handphone. Customers could opt to come to the hotel or the women would be brought to the premises of their choice. 

“Our investigations showed that the women, in their 20s, entered the country as tourists a few weeks ago. They were in Kuala Lumpur before coming here,” he said yesterday. 

SAC Abdul Samah said police were going all out to rid the state of vice activities by conducting raids on karaoke lounges and health centres which were sometimes fronts for prostitution.  

On Thursday, eight Chinese nationals and a Vietnamese woman, who entered the country as tourists, were rounded up at a pub-cum-brothel in Anson Road. 

George Town OCPD Asst Comm Azam Abd Hamid had recently warned vice operators to cease their operations or face action under the Restricted Residence Enactment.
