Nga: Govt does not support LGBT, stern action will be taken against those who go against policies


KUALA LUMPUR: Action will be taken according to law against any quarters who run afoul of government policies, says Nga Kor Ming.

The Local Government Development Minister also said Putrajaya does not support lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) elements when asked to comment on the controversial Thai Hot Guy event.

“This is a specific issue. The government does not support LGBT. This is the government’s policy and I hope it will not be made into an issue,” he told reporters after the appointment ceremony of the ministry’s panel of experts here on Wednesday (March 22).

"Action will be taken according to the law against those who go against the government’s policy,” he added.

Posters of the event featuring photos of male waiters dressed in women's lingerie went viral on social media on Tuesday (March 21).

In a statement on Wednesday (March 22), the Prime Minister's political secretary Azman Abidin said the club does not have an entertainment licence, but only a restaurant licence, which expired in February 2021.

He said DBKL was also checking to see if there had been any breach of rules and regulations which would warrant action to be taken.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail also said on Wednesday (March 22) that the event should not go on as it could cause anxiety, especially among Muslims who will be observing Ramadan.

He added that the ministry will find out where the club got their approval from and contact the local authorities.
