PETALING JAYA: Police rounded up 15 foreign nationals and two locals during a raid on two entertainment outlets in Taman Perindustrian KIP near Kepong.

Selangor Anti-Vice, Gambling and Secret Societies Division (D7) staff officer Deputy Supt Azmi Syukor said the 14 foreign women and a transgender are believed to have violated immigration laws such as abusing social visit passes and not having valid travel documents.

"They were caught separately working at different outlets. We found two Indonesians and seven Vietnamese women in one outlet and four more Vietnamese women, a Laotian woman and a Thai transgender in the other," he said after the raid which started around 11.50pm on Saturday (Jan 11).

He said the foreign nationals, aged 18 to 31, were allegedly working as guest relations officers at the outlets adding that there were no indications that they offered sexual services.

It is learned that some of the women tried to resist arrest during the raid with one of them suffering cuts to her elbows and knees as she fell in the back alley while trying to flee.

It is understood that one of the outlets had been operating for a few years under different names while the other was operating without a license.

Police also picked up two locals - a 39-year old woman and a 30-year-old man - who are believed to be caretakers of the outlets and seized about RM1,452 in cash and several audiovisual equipment including LCD screens, microphones, and amplifier sets.

All those arrested were taken to the Gombak police station for further investigations under the Selangor Entertainment Enactment as well as the Immigration Act 1959/63.
