Brothel right smack in the neighbourhood
FROM the outside it looks like another terrace house in a middle-class suburb. Within its walls, however, is a brothel that offers selected clients a three-in-one service massage, intimate bathing and sex.
The “captain” who runs the place charges his clients a flat rate of RM130 per visit on a take it or leave it basis, meaning that even if the customer does not want to enjoy all the perks, he still has to pay the full fee.
The brothel in Cheras is believed to have been in operation for over three years without the residents realising it is located smack in their neighbourhood, Metro Ahad reported.
The clients are carefully chosen through references and discreet selection, with only five to 10 customers allowed into the premises daily.
Lia, one of five Thai women who works there, said that when she retired for the day, she would sleep on the same bed that had been used earlier to entertain her clients.
The women are not allowed to leave the house except on designated days-off and only during the night.
A man claiming to work there as a security guard said the house had never been raided by any enforcement agency.
Selangor anti-vice, gaming and secret societies head Asst Supt Rohan Shah Ahmad said he has not received any report about the illegal love nest but would investigate.
