Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has taken swift action by ordering the immediate closure of a shop situated along Jalan Bukit Bintang. This move comes in response to a viral video circulating on social media last week, depicting women dressed in revealing attire dancing in front of the establishment.
In an announcement made on Facebook, DBKL revealed that its enforcement division executed a targeted operation at the premises on August 23rd. The investigation unveiled that the shop held a comprehensive retail store license, limited exclusively to dry goods retail.
Regrettably, DBKL noted that the shop was being operated by a quartet of foreign employees, all of whom lacked valid work permits as required by regulations. Consequently, DBKL proceeded to issue a compound notice for the infringement of employing foreign workers without valid work permits. Furthermore, an additional compound notice was administered for engaging in activities that deviated from the scope permitted by the license.
DBKL also disclosed that, as per the account of the workers at the establishment, the dance performance took place on July 5th. This event was purportedly organized in celebration of the shop’s anniversary.
