Washington, May 2 (ANI): US Secret Service agents who were involved in the Colombian sex scandal had paid 10 out of 12 prostitutes in Cartagena, agency officials said.
Officials have said none of the women were found to be connected to terrorist organizations or drug cartels.
According to the Washington post, Secret Service officials have submitted a 24-page answer to congressional committees investigating the scandal.
The agency considers the document 'law enforcement sensitive' and has asked the committees to not release it publicly. gency investigators had questioned 10 of the 12 women involved, aged between 20 and 39, and plan to speak with the others soon as part of their ongoing probe.
The Secret Service had sent 175 agents and officers to Colombia last month for President Obama's trip to the Summit of the Americas.
Of those, 135 employees stayed at the Hotel Caribe where the prostitution scandal unfolded, congressional officials said.
Nine of the 12 employees successfully completed polygraph exams, but three employees refused to take them, including the supervisor whose decision not to pay a woman led hotel management and local police to alert U.S.
At least three congressional committees are tracking the scandal and the Department of Homeland Security inspector-general is also conducting a broader inquiry into how the agency responded to the misconduct. (ANI)
