MELAKA – A 33-year- old woman suspected of offering sexual services at hotels throughout the country was detained at a hotel in Melaka Raya, here on Saturday.
Enforcement Head of the Melaka Islamic Religious Department (JAIM), Rahimin Bani said the woman, using the pseudonym ‘Miss Nora’ offered the immoral activities via the social media at four-star and five-star hotels, while clients must pay a deposit to ‘book’ for the services.
He said the married woman, who hails from Penang, was detained during a raid by JAIM enforcement team following a public complaint at about 10.55 pm at a hotel room.
“Upon an inspection at the room, we found a bottle of lubricant, 14 condoms including one which had been used, cash amounting to more than RM6,000 believed to be payments for prostitution activities, two sets of handphones and a laptop computer,” he told reporters here today.
He said a log book recording the schedule of sexual services she was offering in each state was also found in the hotel room and the woman travelled on her own by bus.
Rahimin said the woman was detained to assist investigations under Section 75 of the Melaka Syariah Offences Enactment 1991 for prostitution and could be fined RM2,000 or jailed for two years upon conviction. – BERNAMA
