SINGAPORE: A 61-year-old man will be charged on Wednesday (May 5) with failing to ensure his employee does not provide sexual services at a massage parlour.

In the afternoon of Aug 12 last year, the Singapore Police Force (SPF) conducted enforcement operations at a massage establishment along Jalan Kayu.

"Through follow-up investigations, officers from Ang Mo Kio Police Division established that the man had purportedly failed to ensure that his employee does not provide sexual services," said SPF on Tuesday.
