Dubai Police have warned of the consequences of responding to massage cards that are distributed randomly in the streets or left on cars

Dubai Police have warned of the consequences of responding to massage cards that are distributed randomly in the streets or left on cars, pointing out that going to unlicensed massage centers exposes the person to legal accountability and makes him a target for crimes such as theft and extortion.

The Dubai Police General Command, in cooperation with its partners, launched an awareness campaign to combat the phenomenon of massage cards, and to control their distributors and unlicensed massage centers, to limit violating and prohibited activities and practices that would prejudice the security and safety of community members.

The Director of the General Department of Criminal Investigation and Investigation, Brigadier General Jamal Salem Al Jallaf, revealed that the campaigns launched by Dubai Police during the past three years to combat this phenomenon resulted in cutting off the service of 3,114 phones registered on those cards, and raiding 218 apartments that were used as unlicensed massage centers, as well as arresting 2,025 people who were involved. In these practices, among them 1,643 people for violating public morals, and 165 people who were proven to have produced and distributed massage cards.
