It was reported on Monday that after when many massage parlors were found to be running illegal activities, the Licenses for new massage parlors in Dubai have been suspended.
UAE daily The National reported that since 25 massage parlours were fined between AED2,000 ($540) and AED10,000 after inspectors found some operating in residential areas and allowing women to massage men, no new licenses would be issued.
Two parlours were shut down as the police found materials used in sexual activities, like condoms there.
A popular UAE based news paper reported that officers from the Dubai Economic Department (DED) visited 34 massage businesses during their recent round of inspections.
Omar Bushahab, the DED's chief officer of commercial compliance and consumer protection, told the paper that there will be no issuance of new licenses.
He said, "We have already stopped such activities. There will be no more new massage centres in Dubai."
