No compromise with owners of business premises leasing out licences to foreigners, employing illegal immigrants, says Zaliha

“I have instructed DBKL to carry out periodic checks and monitoring of business premises in the city to ensure issues such as leasing out business licences to foreigners without valid documents and employment of illegal immigrants can be eradicated.”
PUTRAJAYA (Dec 26): Owners of business premises in Kuala Lumpur are reminded to comply with all regulations set by the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), especially on leasing out the premises to foreigners without valid documents and employing illegal immigrants.
Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Federal Territories) Dr Zaliha Mustafa said they should go through the proper channel if they intend to hire foreign workers.
“I have instructed DBKL to carry out periodic checks and monitoring of business premises in the city to ensure issues such as leasing out business licences to foreigners without valid documents and employment of illegal immigrants can be eradicated,” she said in a statement here on Saturday.
She also thanked the General Operations of the Royal Malaysian Police for the raid conducted in Jalan Silang here on Thursday, which resulted in the arrest of 1,101 illegal immigrants, most of them Bangladeshi, Nepalese and Myanmar nationals.
They were detained for various Immigration offences under an integrated operation involving several enforcement agencies in the Jalan Silang area, dubbed “mini Dhaka”.
