It is understood that a popular singer with the song ‘Pretty Girl’ and started in the art industry after the social media, was arrested while performing at a shopping center here on June 21.

“I apologize to all fans who are willing to come to see my performances in Malaysia.

“I was arrested while performing and taken into the custody of immigration authorities, a lock-up that was as hell of a world,”  she said in a statement on Instagram.

Kuala Lumpur Immigration Director, Hamidi Adam, said Lindemann was arrested for failing to obtain a valid permit for artists performing in Malaysia.

He said immigration officials arrested the singer after getting information and released the following day.

“If she wants to perform in our country, Maggie Lindemann needs to apply for a professional visit pass.

“Unfortunately the organizers have not heard the advice and continue to perform,” he told AFP.

The american pop star Maggie Lindemann also claimed that they could not finish the Association of Southeast Asian Nations ASEAN  countries tour, including Singapore and Vietnam after being detained in Malaysia.

It is the latest case involving an external artist to Malaysia, who failed to comply with the rules for special permit.

On June 30, three Japanese women and a Spanish man were arrested during a raid on a cosplay festival on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur without proper documents. They were released after heavy penalties.

It is pertinent to mention here that every person entering Malaysia must possess a valid national Passport or internationally recognised Travel Document valid for travelling to Malaysia.
