KUALA LUMPUR: A total of 91 individuals were issued with compounds following raids at two entertainment outlets in Kuchai Lama and Bandar Baru Sri Petaling early Sunday (Sept 6) morning.

Those issued with compounds were local customers and pub workers.

Police also detained 16 Vietnamese women who worked as hostesses at the outlets and a male Myanmar national.

Acting on a tip-off, police raided the first premises in Bandar Baru Sri Petaling at about 12.30am on Sunday.

Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Zailrulnizam Mohd Zainuddin@Hilmi said compounds were issued to 18 customers at the outlet for violating the recovery movement control order (MCO).

"We raided the second outlet at Kuchai Business Park at about 2am and detained 17 Vietnamese women.

"We also issued compounds to 73 customers and three local pub workers," he said when contacted Monday (Sept 7).

The Vietnamese women, aged between 20 and 40, have been remanded until Sept 19, he added.

"All pub or bar owners must not employ undocumented foreigners or those with no valid permits.

"Stern action will also be taken against those operating without valid business licences," he said.

ACP Zailrulnizam reminded the public to comply with standard operating procedures (SOPs) during the recovery MCO.

He also urged anyone with information on any crime to contact Brickfields police at 03-2297 9222 or the nearest police station.

"We hope for the cooperation of the public in stopping the spread of Covid-19," he said.
