Four policewomen suspended for porn video in Peru

Lima, Feb 26 (IANS) Four policewomen who appeared in a video posted on a pornographic website have been suspended without pay by Peru’s Interior Minister Mercedes Cabanillas.
The scandal broke Monday when the Frecuencia Latina network’s “Enemigos Intimos” show broadcast the video, which shows three members of a National Police motorised unit in their undergarments coming out of the shower, reports EFE.

The fourth officer stands accused of making the video.

“This cannot be allowed in an institution like the National Police and less so at a workplace. If we allow this, we are easing off on discipline,” Cabanillas told Radio Programas del Peru Tuesday.

The video, which was shot at the unit’s station in Lima, got 130,000 hits in the 24 hours it was up on the cholotube.com Web site, “Enemigos Intimos” reported.

The officers’ unit, known as “Escuadron Fenix” (Phoenix Squad), provides traffic control, and was the subject of a reality television series that looked at both the investigations carried out by the women and their romantic problems.

Former National Police chief Eduardo Perez Rocha created the squad because female officers were believed to be less susceptible to bribes than their male counterparts.

The women selected for the squad were tall and had to be in good shape to handle the heavy Harley-Davidson motorcycles used in traffic enforcement, Perez Rocha told “Enemigos Intimos”.
