KUALA LUMPUR: If there is no concrete solution to the freeze on the intake of foreign workers, the iconic 24-hour mamak restaurants will be out of business soon, says the Malaysian Muslim Restaurant Owners Association (Presma).

Its president Noorul Hassan Saul Hameed sounded the alarm, saying that more than 200 mamak restaurants have closed down after the freeze was announced by the Government in February.
