FOUR civil servants were caught literally with their pants down at a massage parlour when officers from the Federal Territory Islamic Religious Department (Jawi) raided the premises, reported Harian Metro.
The men claimed they were tired and were merely seeking a traditional massage when they were picked up during the operation in Jalan Klang Lama early on Sunday morning.
Jawi chief enforcement officer Wan Jaapar Wan Ahmad reportedly said that the men in their 30s and 40s were in Kuala Lumpur for a three-day course.
He said they claimed that they did not even know the premises was actually a brothel.
Wan Jaapar pointed out their excuses did not make sense because the men were fully naked with the women when they were arrested, the report said.
He said some of the men pleaded to be set free, but his department was not going to compromise unless they could come up with a better excuse.
The men were taken to Jawi's office to arrange their bail and will be charged.
