KUALA LUMPUR: A total of 25 people, including 22 foreign women believed to be working as prostitutes and guest relation officers (GROs), have been detained following anti-vice raids in Taman Serdang Perdana and Bandar Manjalara.

Police also issued compounds to 62 local customers for violating the recovery movement control order (MCO) put in place to contain the Covid-19 outbreak.

Bukit Aman anti-vice, gambling and secret societies division (D7) principal assistant director Senior Asst Comm Mohd Zani Che Din said a team of police personnel raided a massage parlour in Serdang Perdana and an entertainment outlet in Bandar Manjalara in an operation that started at 5.20pm on Friday (Aug 28).

“At the massage parlour, we detained three Vietnamese women and six Indonesian women, aged between 18 and 29, working as prostitutes.

"We believe the massage parlour was just a front to provide sexual services. We also detained a 30-year-old local man who was the caretaker.

“Two local customers were also issued with compounds," he said when contacted Saturday (Aug 29).

At the second premises, an entertainment outlet in Bandar Manjalara, SAC Mohd Zani said 13 Vietnamese women aged between 20 and 36 were detained for working as GROs.

"We also detained two local men aged 19 and 26, who were the cashier and the manager respectively.

"Compounds were issued to 58 local men and two local women who were customers," he added.

SAC Mohd Zani said police will investigate the matter further to curb such illegal activities.

"We hope the public can continue to provide information on such premises, and we will step up our operations, ” he said.
