 Kepala Kantor Kementerian Hukum dan HAM (Kemenkum HAM) Sumsel, Sudirman D Hury saat memberikan keterangan terkait tertangkapnya 20 WNA yang membuka praktek pijat disalah satu hotel bintang empat di Palembang, Sumatera Selatan, Kamis 10/1/2019).

The South Sumatera Regional Office of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights (Kemenkum HAM) arrested 20 Foreign Nationals who opened an illegal traditional massage practice in one of four-star hotels in Palembang.

The Head of South Sumatera Regional Office of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights, Sudirman D. Hury, said that from 20 suspects, 16 are Malaysian, two are Chinese, one comes from Hongkong, one is Belgian. These Foreign Nationals, he continued, had violated regulation by using their visitor visa. They were caught red-handed opening a massage practice without proper permit.

“They have been here for three days (Palembang) and opened a traditional massage practice in a four-star hotel,” said Sudirman on Thursday (10/1/2019).

Sudirman explained that the Foreign Nationals opened registration for the massage service to all clients via online. From that, the officer directly conducted preliminary investigation and apprehended 20 Foreign Nationals.

Sudirman added that before they came to Palembang, those Foreign Nationals also opened massage practice in several other big cities, such as Medan and Bali. They visited all of those cities in three days.

“After three days, they will move again and open a massage practice in other places, to avoid the officer’s supervision, he said. Sudirman will not only charge the Foreign Nationals with deportation, but also bring the case to the court (general crime) because they had opened a massage practice without proper permit from the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Manpower. “We will bring them to jail. This is obviously a crime because there was not a permit to open health practice from the related Institution, we will push this case. So, It is not just deportation,” he said.
