Police detained 33 women guest relations officers in a raid on an entertainment outlet in Tanjung Tokong, Tuesday
Penang Northeast Region police chief Gan Kong Meng said a police unit from the Secret Society, Gambling and Anti-Vice Division raided the premise at 11pm following a tip-off from the public.
“The GROs tried to escape, but police had the place surrounded,” he said yesterday when contacted. Gan said the GROs in their early 20s were from China and Vietnam.
He said that initial investigation showed that they had misused their social visit passes, some of which had expired.
The case will be investigated under the Immigration Act 1959/63, Gan said.
