Detained at workplace: Some of the Vietnamese women nabbed at the entertainment outlet during the ‘Ops Noda’ in Sentul in Kuala Lumpur.

KUALA LUMPUR: Fourteen Vietnamese women, believed to be working as guest relations officers (GROs), were detained in a raid on an entertainment outlet in Sentul.

Aged between 24 and 31, they were arrested along with a Malaysian woman, who was the manager of the premises during the 9.40pm raid on Saturday.

It is learnt that the premises, which operates from 5pm till 11.59pm, would provide customers with open karaoke sessions while being “served” by the GROs, who earned commissions based on the number of drinks bought for them.

Customers were also encouraged to give tips to the GROs based on their satisfaction of the service given to them.

Kuala Lumpur CID chief Senior Asst Comm Rusdi Md Isa said an amplifier, two microphones, a set of speakers and RM520 cash were seized during the operation codenamed Ops Noda.

“We also checked 22 Malaysian men at the location.

“Those detained have been remanded,” he said.

SAC Rusdi urged anyone with information on criminal activities to contact the KL CID Special Operation Room at 03-2146 0670 or the KL police hotline at 03-2115 9999.
