2m. USD in funds squandered on porno TV channel
The television channel TV RCN denounced the misuse of funds from the USA to the Columbian anti-narcotics police force: part was spent on mathematics textbooks and subscription fees to pornographic TV channels.
TV RCN broadcast the contents of a document from the United States Embassy in Bogota which mentioned the disappearance of 2 million USD in funds for the Columbian anti-narcotics police. The document claimed that “the money for anti-narcotics aid was used – for example – for the purchase of books…and for the subscription fees for pornographic channels for a company in Florenca (Caqueta province), all purchased with the anti-drugs money”.
The discovery of the misuse of funds, made last May, has led to a spate of dismissals in the Columbian police force.
