AMSTERDAM – Famous sex club Yab Yum on the Singel in the centre of Amsterdam is going to have to shut its doors. The municipality informed the management of the establishment on Friday that its license is being revoked.

The decision comes after a recommendation from the national Bibob bureau, which monitors licenses to investigate connections with criminal purposes. "They issued an extremely negative recommendation," a spokesperson for the municipality said. "There is a serious danger that Yab Yum is using its license to engage in criminal activities."

The sex club was notified of the "proposed decision to shut down" the club a few weeks ago by the Amsterdam city executive. Management was then given an opportunity to respond to the city's decision. The club's arguments were not enough to change the city's mind however.

Yab Yum will have to actually have its doors boarded over in four weeks' time. The nightclub can still go to court to fight the decision.
