Resort owner to be summoned over alleged Lang Tengah 'wild party'

PETALING JAYA: The owner of a private resort in Lang Tengah Island in Terengganu will be summoned on Thursday (May 23) over the spread on social media of several photos and posters supposedly of a "wild party" organised there.

According to Sinar Harian, state exco member Datuk Razali Idris said the resort had been requested to provide an explanation regarding the issue that has been viral on social media since Tuesday (May 21).

The meeting will also involve the Terengganu Islamic Religious Affairs Department and the Kuala Terengganu City Council.

"We will investigate this matter first. If there are any violations in terms of regulations or any acts, we will take action.

"We will carefully examine the response from the private resort before taking any action," said Razali, who is in charge of the tourism, culture, environment and climate change portfolio, on Tuesday.

He also urged the public to provide any information on the issue to the authorities.

"If there is evidence that it violated regulations or if there were Muslims involved in the party, it can be reported to the religious office for further investigation," he said.

On Tuesday, posters and photos showing women dressed in swimsuits at a party allegedly held on the island went viral.
