A total of 22 foreign women and seven male employees were arrested after police raided a karaoke center in Selangor, Malaysia, on Sunday.

At about 12:30 am on May 26, more than two dozen officers from the Selangor Anti-Vice, Gaming and Secret Societies Division (D7) stormed a premise on Jalan SS 8/3 in Sungai Way Free Trade Industrial Zone, which housed 22 karaoke rooms operating from 10 pm to 4 am on the third floor, the China Press reported.

According to sources, the karaoke center had been operating for about one year, offering packages to ‘lonely’ customers who would like to be accompanied or entertained by guest relations officers at a rate of 120 ringgit (US$28.50) for three hours.

During the raid, a total of 20 Vietnamese and two Lao women aged between 20 and 30, who entered Malaysia on social permits, were arrested for violating the conditions of their stay by working as guest relations officers.

Four Bangladeshi men, who worked as guards at the premises, were also arrested for failing to show any identification documents. Three Chinese men – two general workers and a manager – were also arrested. The manager is being investigated for harboring illegal immigrants.

All those arrested were taken to Sungai Way police station for further investigation under Section 39B of the Immigration Regulations 1963 and Section 6 (1) C and Section 55 (B) of the Immigration Act 1959/63.
