GEORGE TOWN: A Thai masseuse was caught naked while massaging her client, in a raid carried out by the Penang Immigration Department at a massage parlour here last night.
Penang Immigration director Muhamad Husni Mahmud said the 30-year-old Thai woman was detained along with her two compatriots, in their 20s, who also worked at the parlour at Lebuh Macallum at 10.20 pm.
“The three Thai women were arrested for violating the terms of their social visit passes and working without a valid permit while the two male customers and owner of the premises were ordered to go to the immigration office for further investigation,” he said here today.
In a separate raid carried out at an entertainment centre at the Lebuh Sungai Pinang, seven women, of Vietnam and Thailand nationalities, were arrested for working as guest relation officers (GROs) at the premises without a valid work permit.
He said the investigation also found that the women, in their 20s and 30s, had abused their social visit passes and were detained for further investigations.
Meanwhile, Husni said during raids carried out at several restaurants, the department had also detained two Indian nationals as well as one Thai citizen for various offences under the Immigration Act.
He said apart from the restaurants, the department also raided a landfill site in Hilir Sungai Kluang and detained five Bangladeshi men working there.
He said those arrested, aged 20 to 50, were taken to the Immigration Depot in Juru for further investigation under Section 6 (1) (c) and Section 15 (1) (c) of the Immigration Act 1959/63 and Rule 39 (b) Immigration Regulations 1963. - Bernama
