A 45-year-old man was fined $600 after he admitted to that he had rented out his shop space to an unlicensed massage business.
The case came to light in March last year, when police officers conducted checks at Oh Eng Siong’s shop in Fortune Centre and found three cubicles partitioned with curtains.
Investigations revealed that body massage services were being provided within these cubicles, out of the public’s view.
There was no valid massage licence on display.
Despite being warned by the police, Oh continued to rent out his shop space to the unlicensed massage business – a fact police discovered when they conducted checks a month later.
The owner of the massage business will be dealt with separately.
