The Dubai Police General Command on Thursday have issued a new warning urging the public against seeking services from unlicenced massage centres, which poses serious threats, including extortion and murder.
Major General Jamal Salem Al Jallaf, Director of the General Department of Criminal, confirmed that Dubai Police had launched several campaigns to combat this illegal activity by raising public awareness of the centres' harmful services, tracking down locations and operators of such unlicenced businesses, as well as arresting distributors of massage cards on vehicles. He explained that this year Dubai Police, in coordination with strategic partners, have sealed 91 flats for violating the law and offering unlicenced services.
The director of Dubai CID reaffirmed that ensuring public safety is a shared responsibility between the Dubai Police and community members.
"Dial 901 or use 'Police Eye' service via Dubai Police smart App to report any suspicious, shady and illegal activities, including these unlicensed centres and their promotors," he urged.
Al Jallaf further noted that licensed massage centres are registered with Dubai Economic and Tourism, and whoever wishes to seek their services can verify that by simply contacting the concerned entities.
