Entertainment outlets in the city centre will no longer be allowed to operate past 1am beginning January 2019.
Federal Territories Minister Khalid Samad said this new regulation will be strictly enforced.
However, exceptions will be made for entertainment outlets with special permission to cater to foreign tourists.
These outlets will be allowed to operate until 5am.
Speaking at a press conference at the Parliament lobby, here, today, Khalid revealed that there are some outlets with this special permission which checks revealing they were merely catering to locals.
“We will have to check again on these special permission outlets. We don’t want it to be abused, especially complaints from the public,” he said.
