Foreign GROs

Walk into any entertainment outlets in Kota Kinabalu City and other major towns of Sabah, you will feel like patronising `watering holes' in other countries as was found out during a raid by police earlier this week.

City police chief ACP Ku Chin Wah led a raid at one outlet and was found to have hired 15 foreigner GROs comprising 13 Chinese national and the remaining two Filipinos. Outlets in Sabah are also known to operate into the wee hours of the morning, up to 5am.

Consumers Association of Sabah and Labuan (Cash) president Datuk Patrick Sindu is now calling all the relevant authorities - City Hall, Police, Immigration Department, Anti-Corruption Agency and Local authorities - to take action.

Sindu also revealed informations reaching him that senior enforcement officers fromPeninsula Malaysia were/are regulars at these outlets.

Quoting Sindu,`It will not come as a surprise if ACA stumbles upon senior officers from the agency being regulars at the entertainment outlets."

Sindu also want City Mayor to check why City Hall enforcement officers never conducted surprise checks at entertainment outlet in the City when they were well known to operate up to 5am.

My Say:
Sound like the tape recorder is `being rewinded and replayed' over and over again. Who is to be blamed is anybody's guess. I rest my case.
