First the Secret Service, Now the Honduran Embassy (More Tales of Colombia Prostitutes)

Via the BBC:  Honduras investigates Bogota embassy Christmas party

Honduras has said it is setting up a commission to investigate reports that a wild Christmas party was held at its embassy in the Colombian capital.

Reports suggest that two prostitutes attended the party, which began on the evening of 20 December and carried on until the next morning, Efe reports.

Computers and mobile phones were stolen and rooms in the embassy, north of Bogota, were ransacked.

Colombian police are looking for the sex workers who attended the party.

Apparently what happens in Colombia does not stay in Colombia.  Perhaps foreign visitors representing their governments ought to steer clear of the sex workers, yes?

(For those who need a refresher on the reference in the title:  Secret Service Agents Recalled from Colombia over Prostitution Allegations).

    Just to note that embassy Christmas parties often include many guests who are local citizens and other foreign diplomats — and their guests. Thus, the story doesn’t exactly point a finger at Honduran diplomats, but neither does it exclude them.

  2. @John Burgess: True.

    Perhaps we can get a platoon of American sex workers, with appropriate security clearances, who we can deploy to these events?
