A Stockholm police officer has been reminded of his responsibilities after being caught in a Thai massage parlour under surveillance by the vice squad.

When Stockholm police visited the Thai massage parlour in southern Stockholm, known to the authorities to also function as a brothel, they found a police colleague among the customers in attendance.

As the Thai massage parlour runs both a prostitution and a massage service, it was impossible to determine the nature of the police officer's visit and whether an offence had been committed.

But as the man's visit was conducted during his working hours, the Stockholm police Section for Internal Investigations (CU) have instructed his commanding officer to remind him of his responsibilities "to perform work during working hours."

The police officer explained to CU that he had visited the massage parlour for treatment on a back complaint.
