The local government of Malay may file a case against illegal massage therapists in the island of Boracay.

According to Island Administrator Glen Sacapaño, the LGU-Malay has a personnel assigned to monitor the activity of these illegitimate masseuse and or masseurs who often targets tourists.

Included in the monitoring team are the members of MAP who observes in crowded places to spot the said massage therapists who are not credited or are involved in illegal activities.

Once caught in the act, they will be immediately brought to the Action Center and will be given appropriate punishment.

A ticket may also be issued, and revocation for those who has a permit if proven guilty.

Sacapaño was also bothered by the growing number of these illegal masseuse and masseurs in Boracay.

A number of complaints from tourists were also received; this is related to an offer which is beyond their duty.

Sacapaño added that pictures can also be a strong evidence.

Meanwhile he advised those working in Boracay to refrain from getting involved in illegal activities that can ruin the island’s reputation.
