The Nationalist Party said today the government has the duty to regularise massage parlours – its decision to remove all licensing was wrong and has had its negative consequences.

The Sunday Times of Malta reported today that in the past two years more than 500 men had been tested for sexually transmitted infection after visiting massage parlours, with most of them opting to take the tests after developing symptoms of venereal diseases.

The statistics provided by the GU clinic shows that massage parlours were being used for prostitution and human trafficking, the PN said.

The government cannot remain inactive in the prevailing circumstances. Some massage parlours are being used as brothels and this goes against the government’s own campaign against human trafficking.
