IPOH: The order is out for the authorities to come down hard on reflexology centres here which are being used as a front offering sexual services.
Perak Local Government Committee chairman Datuk Dr Mah Hang Soon said regular spot checks would be conducted on the centres to ensure they adhered to rules and regulations.
“We have received complaints from housewives asking us to keep an eye on these centres,” he told reporters here yesterday after chairing a meeting on local councils at the state secretariat building.
He said the state had instructed all local councils to tighten its licensing requirements for such centres and was not contemplating to bar foreign women from working in such centres.
Dr Mah said regular checks were conducted on 58 registered reflexology centres in the city but none were found offering sexual services.
He told local councils not to hesitate to revoke their operating licenses if they failed to adhere to rules and regulations.
On a different matter, Dr Mah said he had requested for a racial breakdown of personnel working in local councils.
“I asked all local council chairman at the meeting to have more officers and personnel from various races in their office.
“I hope the composition is in line with the 1Malaysia slogan,” he said.
Dr Mah also said that the one-stop-centres in all local councils in the state fared better than the national average.
“While the national figure is 90.2%, the councils in Perak achieved 95.7%,” he added.
