12 foreign women nabbed at 'B2B' massage parlours

PUTRAJAYA: The Immigration Department detained 12 foreign masseuses for offering 'body-to-body' (B2B) services at two massage parlours in Old Klang Road, Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

Its director-general, Datuk Seri Mustafar Ali said two Malaysian men, who were supervisors at the premises, were also detained in the operation, dubbed "Ops Gegar", which was conducted at 5pm.

The two men had been detained before for a similar offence, he said in a statement today.

Mustafar said the premises, which offered the B2B service at RM160 per person, had been raided before.

He said of the 12 foreign masseuses detained, nine were Filipinas and one each from Vietnam, Thailand and China.

Mustafar said all of them were being detained at the Putrajaya Immigration Detention Depot to facilitate investigations under the Anti-Trafficking in Persons and Anti-Smuggling of Migrants Act, Immigration Act 1959/63, Passports Act 1966 and the Immigration Regulations 1963. — Bernama
