The police have raided 11 premises, including two food courts, in response to reports of prostitution activities in Kuala Lumpur

In a series of anti-prostitution raids on Saturday, 16 March, the police arrested 47 individuals in Jalan Pudu and Jalan Bukit Bintang, reported the New Straits Times.

Of the 11 raided premises, two were brothels, seven were massage parlours, and two were food courts, said Dang Wangi police chief ACP Noor Dellhan Yahaya.

It is understood that the modus operandi began at the food courts, where clients would purchase garlands for sex workers.

The clients would then leave the food courts with the sex workers to engage in sexual activities at a different location.

The police seized condoms, massage oils, towels, receipts, work schedules, garlands, CCTVs, microphones, modems, mobile phones, and RM4,730 in cash

Of the 47 individuals arrested, 25 were foreign women, 14 were foreign men, and eight were locals.

The case is currently being investigated under Section 372B of the Penal Code for prostitution, as well as Section 55B and Section 6(1)(c) of the Immigration Act, reported Harian Metro.
