Police arrested 43 foreigners in a raid on a three-storey building which had been converted into an illegal disco in Bayu Perdana, Klang, on Sunday.

South Klang district police chief Shamsul Amar Ramli said the suspects, aged 20 to 40, had been engrossed in their entertainment activities when the raid took place at about 11.30pm.

He said 40 of those detained were Indonesian men (25) and women (15) while the other three were Bangladeshis believed to be the caretakers of the illegal disco.

“Further examination found that some of them were illegal immigrants and some had committed various wrongdoings under the Immigration Act 1963,” he told reporters at the South Klang district police headquarters today.

He said the illegal disco, which began operating a few years ago, had been raided several times before. However, the activities still continued.

He said further investigations found that only individuals with an invitation from the organisers were allowed to enter and participate in the entertainment activities as most of those detained did not live in the Klang district.

“The visitors of the illegal disco are those who receive invitations (from the organisers) through social media. If they do not have an invitation, they are prohibited from entering the premises,” he said.

He added that further investigations were underway to track down the mastermind. The foreigners meanwhile have been remanded until Sept 13.
