Two Vietnamese men pleaded guilty at a Sessions Court here today to committing “immoral activities” at a hotel room at Jalan Burma here, earlier this month. Tang Van Duc, 22, and Lee Vu Linh, 29, made their pleas after the charge sheet was read out to them in English by a translator before judge Norhayati Mohd Yunus. The duo – a gay couple – was arrested by the State Immigration Department in the hotel room while participating in an “immoral act” with an “agent provocateur” at about 9.30pm on Nov 12. Tang and Lee had entered the country as tourists on Oct 18 on a Social Visit Pass which was to expire on Nov 15.
