FBI Agent Denies Using Tax Dollars to Pay for Prostitutes in Weapon Smuggling Case in Philippines

An FBI agent accused of using public funds to pay for prostitutes for himself and the people he was investigating in the Philippines denied wrongdoing Wednesday, the Los Angeles Times reports. 

Agent Charles Ro was working undercover investigating weapons smuggling when he befriended three Filipino nationals by taking them to karaoke bars where women were topless, the LA Times reported.

Three suspects later arrested in the investigation claim Ro induced them to cooperate in smuggling weapons.

Defense attorneys, who were hoping to get the case thrown out, said Ro committed “outrageous government conduct.”

Ro said he was unaware of the Filipinos using money for prostitutes and said he doubts it happened, the LA Times reported.
