An inter-disciplinary inspection team in Ho Chi Minh City is handling two unlicensed karaoke bars, one of which, with dozens of female attendants, only served South Korean guests, Vietnamese media said. The team on Monday issued a report on applying administrative penalties to the two illicit bars, Bi Ngo 568 and Karaoke 123, both located on Le Thi Rieng Street, Ben Thanh Ward, District 1, for their violations of relevant regulations. Team members came from the Social Crime Investigation Police Department and the Department of Culture, Sports, and Tourism. On Friday morning, the team, acting on a tip-off, raided the bars and found that they had committed a series of violations: operating without a license; arranging more attendants than allowed in a karaoke room; not issuing invoices for goods sold; illegally storing and using banned video and audio tapes; and several other offenses. Notably, the inspection team found 36 female attendants serving foreign guests in six karaoke rooms at Bi Ngo 568, according to national broadcaster Radio the Voice of Vietnam.    This illicit karaoke bar served South Korean guests only, the broadcaster cited the team as saying.
