Honduras ambassador resigns after alleged embassy orgy



TEGUCIGALPA—The Honduran ambassador to Colombia was forced to resign Saturday after his bodyguard reportedly held a Christmas party with prostitutes at the mission, the foreign ministry in Tegucigalpa said.

Carlos Rodriguez Andino stepped down after Honduran Foreign Minister Arturo Corrales received a report drafted by a special commission appointed to investigate the December 20 incident in Bogota.

“In order to safeguard national interests and good relations with the Republic of Colombia, we asked for the ambassador’s irrevocable resignation and Mr Rodriguez stepped down, effective immediately,” the foreign ministry said.

According to Honduran media reports, the ambassador’s bodyguard and close friend Jorge Mendoza organized a party at the embassy to celebrate Christmas that turned into a booze-fueled orgy with prostitutes.

Reports said the prostitutes stole embassy computers and cell phones, and defecated on the desks of the ambassador and the commercial attache, after they were asked to leave without being paid.

“A scandal in our foreign service is a stain on the country’s name. Diplomatic missions are sacred,” said lawmaker Rodolfo Zelaya.

Colombian police said they are also investigating the incident at the embassy, which is located in an upscale Bogota neighborhood.

The police chief for the northern part of Bogota, Jose Baquero, said officers were seeking to question two prostitutes who were taken to the embassy in a vehicle about the party and the alleged theft.

The party began around 10:00 pm and ended at almost 5:00 am the next morning, according to police.

The US Secret Service was embroiled in a similar scandal involving prostitutes and its agents last April in the Colombian city of Cartagena, where President Barack Obama attended the Summit of the Americas.

More than two dozen Secret Service agents and military personnel, tasked with preparing security for Obama’s high-profile visit, were sent home. Nine have since left the agency as it seeks to repair its tarnished reputation.

    Amigos and Amigas, its nice to know how Honduran’s celebrate Christmas party. The orgy at the embassy is a mess and an embarrassment for Honduras. It shows how embassy people especially bodyguards are becoming maniac because they are away home and not able to hump. Are this guys given R&R or off duty to have a change oil for their biological needs. If not, then its really a problem. This men perhaps cannot abstain from having sex reason they find it better to have an orgy Christmas party at the embassy where everybody inside its compound are immune from charges. So ingat mga ambassadors, if you want to save your day job be sure that the needs of your men are taken cared of, including R & R and humping time but not inside the embassy please. Nadali na ang mga bodyguards ni Obama at worst Clinton did it himself with Monica at the office of the president at the White House salamat na lang at walang lumabas na sex tape sa scandal. Majkikita sana nating how Clinton does the Gangnam dance..he he he.

    at least nag resign kaagad, hindi katulad sa Pilipinas na sasabihing political motive ang pag tatanggal sa kanya.

    Yan ang Government Official. Sana gayahin sya ng isang Governor dito sa pinas. Suspendido na nga ayaw pa rin umalis sa opisina. Kakahiya!

  • Christian Coello

    You stay classy, Honduras.

  • opinyonlangpo

    If it is a Philippine ambassador, expect him to fight it out to the last breath and protests and deny and so on. Sometimes, even governors do not listen to official orders of their superiors. Filipino style of government.
