Daughter of VIP nabbed in raid on TTDI pub

KUALA LUMPUR: The child of a VIP was among 34 people arrested in a police raid on a pub in Taman Tun Dr Ismail here, last Sunday.

In a statement late last night, Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Seri Mazlan Lazim said the VIP’s child was among 29 individuals nabbed for involvement in pub activities beyond the business operation hours allowed during the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) – which is in force until Aug 31.

In the 1.20am raid, one local man believed to be the pub’s manager, one Bangladeshi man and three Filipina women believed to be workers at the premises were also detained.

According to Bernama, the four foreign nationals were remanded for 14 days for further investigations; while the 29 local patrons were each slapped with a RM1,000 compound.

On the VIP’s child being detained and fined, Mazlan said that the Kuala Lumpur police does not practice double standards and would never compromise towards any individual who breaches RMCO guidelines.

“Further investigations revealed that the premises was operating without a valid business license,” he added.

Mazlan said that investigation papers were opened under Section 55B of the Immigration Act 1959/63 for employing one or more persons other than citizens or Entry Permit holders who do not have a valid pass; Rule 39(b) of the Immigration Regulations 1963 for abuse of pass; Section 76 of the Excise Act 1976; and Rule 11 of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases (Measures Within Infected Local Areas)(No.7) Regulations 2020.

Social media has been rife with talk on the arrest of the VIP’s child, with speculation pointing to the daughter of a top political leader.-NST
