ALOR STAR: Religious enforcement officers followed procedures when conducting a khalwat (close proximity) raid at a condominium in Langkawi rented by an American couple.
A Kedah Religious Department spokesman said the raid conducted at 2am on Oct 12 was made following public complaints of immoral activities at the condominium.
“The officers only knocked on the door and they did not enter the condominium.
“They asked for the couple’s passports and marriage certificate to ascertain their religion,” he said when contacted here yesterday. (Extracted from The Star Online of November 1, 2006.)
