Selangor Immigration detains 164 illegal foreigners in Klang
SHAH ALAM: The Selangor Immigration Department detained 164 foreigners for various offences in a four-hour operation, in the vicinity of the old bus station in Klang yesterday.
At a press conference in his office here today, Selangor Immigration Enforcement Unit chief, Othman Montil said the detainees, between 20 and 48, were mostly without valid travel documents, had overstayed or abused their social visit passes.
He said the detainees were from Indonesia, Bangladesh, Myanmar, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Cambodia, and included 47 women.
Othman added that most of them were working in restaurants and mobile phone card kiosks.
"Apart from one woman who was working as a prostitute, most of them were employed by locals to work in their business premises. No employer has been detained so far but we're still investigating as these foreigners do not have work permits," he concluded. Bernama
