Giving them the slip, Hollywood comedy-style


EIGHT foreign nationals, one of them a woman, squeezed into the crawlspace under a stage at a nightclub just to hide from the authorities.

However, the team of Immigration officers who raided the nightclub in Jalan Pudu Ulu on Friday managed to find them, Harian Metro reported.

Kuala Lumpur Immigration director Syamsul Badrin Mohshin said 40 officers raided the entertainment centre at around 11.10pm after intelligence had been gathered over two weeks.

“We looked into the premises after receiving information from the public about immoral activities involving foreigners.

“A total of 38 foreign nationals were checked, with 34 of them (15 men and 19 women) – aged between 25 and 40 – detained for having no identity documents, overstaying and misusing social visit passes,” he said.

He said those arrested included 14 Bangladeshi men and a Myanmar man believed to be working as bartenders.

He said 18 Thai women and a Laotian woman, who were detained, were suspected to be guest relations officers (GROs).

> A man was arrested for lodging a false report saying he was robbed at Jalan Bako in Kuching, Berita Harian reported.

Kuching OCPD Asst Comm Ahsmon Bajah said the 23-year-old man claimed he was robbed by two men on a motorcycle at a bus station there on Friday.

“Acting on the report, the police conducted an investigation before finding that the suspect was making up stories,” he said.

ACP Ahsmon said the suspect is believed to have done so because he had spent RM1,940 in cash belonging to his employer.
