The embassy of Honduras in Bogota has been robbed after an employee used the office to throw a party involving prostitutes and an abundance of alcohol, reported a Honduras newspaper Thursday.
According to Honduran newspaper El Heraldo the embassy was robbed of computers and cell phones and invitees to the extra-official party defecated in the ambassador’s private office and on the military attache’s desk.
The newspaper said the party and subsequent robbery put Honduran national security, joint efforts to fight crime, and the diplomatic mission in Bogota at risk.
According to the newspaper, the December 20 party had been thrown by an assistant of the ambassador who, in contravention of the rules, was allowed to live in the embassy and was even given the keys to the building.
The employee reportedly felt “lonely” and invited Colombian friends over, with whom the Honduran left the embassy, got “completely drunk” and returned with an unknown number of prostitutes.
Instead of firing the embassy employee, Ambassador Carlos Humberto Rodriguez took the party organizer into his home while trying to stop the scandal from going public.
The ambassador failed to respond to requests to clarify the situation.
