The Prime Minister's Office (PMO) today said that the night club in Kuala Lumpur at which an event featuring "Thai hot guys" was meant to be held did not possess an entertainment licence, and that no application for one had been submitted. 

In a statement, the prime minister's aide Azman Abidin said a report had been received on the event slated for 6pm on March 30, organised by the Privacy Club at Jalan Tun Razak.

He said preliminary investigations by the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) had found that the premises were licensed as a restaurant to a company called Beijing 9 Sdn Bhd.

"However, the company's restaurant licence expired on Feb 4, 2021," he said. 

"The premises do not have an entertainment licence, and there has been no application for one, or for the carrying out of entertainment activities."

The event, promoted as featuring "hot guys in female underwear", was earlier slammed by PAS which described it as "insensitive", "immoral" and "disgusting". 

It also questioned the use of the late prime minister's name by the night club, calling it an insult.

Azman said DBKL was looking into the situation and would take action if the organisers had violated any rules or conditions.
