Perak Government To Monitor Family Entertainment Centres


LUMUT, July 29- The Perak government will continue to monitor operations of family entertainment centres in the state to ensure they do not violate conditions set in their licence.

zambryMenteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir said checks were always conducted at family entertainment centres to ensure they operate based on the licence issued to them.

He said authorities would also raid the premises if there were complaints of the operators abusing the licence.

“Since it involves family entertainment centres, we have to look at the form of entertainment held at the premises,” he told reporters after handing out the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) Ramadan and Aidilfitri contributions to about 1,760 people near here Sunday.

He said this in response to the Johor government’s move to review the issuing of licences for family entertainment centres in an effort to combat crime and social problems in the state.

Early this month, Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin was reported to have said that the review was needed as some of the premises which were registered as family entertainment centres did not run such a business.
