Israeli prosecutors have launched an offensive to end lap dance in strip clubs, while legislators from across the political spectrum support a bill to ban striptease across the board.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said on Sunday that law enforcement had received a statement from the prosecutor's office stating that mockery can be considered a form of prostitution and thus a violation.
Officers now await instructions on maintaining the rule, he said.
"The phenomenon known as & # 39; lapdance & # 39; is in some circumstances an" act of prostitution "," says the policy rule.
"The continuation of this activity is a criminal offense and reason for taking all the measures in the law", it added.
The police have informed the strip club of the policy change and warned that they would act to enforce it, the ruling said.
Mr. Rosenfeld confirmed that "some letters have been sent" to club owners.
"The bill was designed to reflect the direct relationship between striptease and prostitution in Israeli law," according to the draft amendment.
