Mocha Girls detained in Malaysia for five days

“Our producer failed to produce the work permit that his contractual commitment with us mandated him, we were taken into custody and detained in the Malaysian Immigration prison for 5 days,” says Mocha Girls about their detention in Malaysia earlier this week.


Nakabalik na sa bansa ang grupong Mocha Girls matapos silang ma-detain ng limang araw sa bansang Malaysia.

Sa statement na inilabas ng all-female group tungkol sa insidente, sa pamamagitan ng Twitter account ng kanilang leader na si Mocha Uson, sinabi nilang nagkaroon ng problema sa pagkuha ng working permit ang promoter ng kanilang show sa Malaysia.

Ang nasabing show ay ginanap noong Biyernes, September 4, sa Soju Sunway, sa Kuala Lumpur.

Sabi ng grupo sa kanilang opisyal na pahayag: “They were rendering their second song number when the Malaysian Immigration authorities conducted a raid in the hotel they were performing, subjecting them to passport and the required permit inspection for our shows.

“As our producer failed to produce the work permit that his contractual commitment with us mandated him, we were taken into custody and detained in the Malaysian Immigration prison for 5 days.”

Dagdag pa ng grupo, “We were initially treated as ordinary criminals until they learned that MOCHA GIRLS were legitimate artists and professional performers in the Philippines that some measure of courtesy and goodwill were extended us.”

Nilinaw rin nila na: “WE WERE NOT DETAINED FOR SEXY PERFORMANCES AS SOME WOULD SPECULATE.

“MOCHA GIRLS’ regular venue for their performances is the international community and the rules and culture of the country where we perform are in our psyche to give respect to always.”

Narito ang kabuuang pahayag ng Mocha Girls:

OFFICIAL STATEMENT OF MOCHA GIRLS MANAGEMENT Re: Mocha Girls’ detention in the Immigration Department of Malaysia) Mocha Girls have been lately on tour abroad for the past years. They have toured the US, Canada, and Europe. This year, they went on Asian tour. Last Friday, Sept. 4, they arrived at KL Malaysia from Thailand to do their last show before finally going back to the Philippines the next day. They were rendering their second song number when the Malaysian Immigration authorities conducted a raid in the hotel they were performing, subjecting them to passport and the required permit inspection for our shows. As our producer failed to produce the work permit that his contractual commitment with us mandated him, we were taken into custody and detained in the Malaysian Immigration prison for 5 days. We were initially treated as ordinary criminals until they learned that MOCHA GIRLS were legitimate artists and professional performers in the Philippines that some measure of courtesy and goodwill were extended us. WE WERE NOT DETAINED FOR SEXY PERFORMANCES AS SOME WOULD SPECULATE. MOCHA GIRLS’ regular venue for their performances is the international community and the rules and culture of the country where we perform are in our psyche to give respect to always. Meanwhile, for the producer’s breach of our contractual agreement to arrange for the issuance of the permit for our shows, our lawyers have assured us that they will take appropriate legal action to bring full justice to us. We wish to express our deep appreciation to all friends and fans who went out of their way to extend help and encouragement to us throughout our days of detention. And, finally to our brothers and sisters in Christ who continually prayed for us, our profound thanks. GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME. #mochagirls
