US military brought prostitutes to Colombian hotel
Washington: A military investigation says up to a dozen US service members brought women, likely prostitutes, to their hotel rooms in Colombia, shortly before President Barack Obama arrived in the country for an April summit.
The report provided to a news agency on Friday reveals new details about the conduct of servicemen during the prostitution scandal that engulfed both military and Secret Service personnel who guard the president. Nine servicemen have been punished so far.
The investigation says hotel staff complained to US officials that military members had female guests in their rooms after 6 am, a violation of hotel policy.
Prostitution is legal in Colombia, but is a violation of the US military code of justice.
