Warren Lewis, the executive officer at Interpol’s Washington D.C. office, is accused of exploiting his authority to get a job for his son and other relatives and acquaintances, Fox News reports.

The Justice Department’s Inspector General’s Office revealed the findings in a reported released Wednesday. Other high-ranking officials are accused of doing the same thing, contributing to what the report called “a pervasive culture of nepotism and favoritism.”

Interpol serves as a liaison between the American government and the international law enforcement body and is overseen by the Justice Department.

The report says Lewis “earmark a spot” for his son and “provide extra attention to his processing, for obvious reasons.”

His son was even hired as a contractor, according to the inspector general.

“Lewis had no personal knowledge of their professional abilities,” the report says. “After the three individuals all failed to make the certified lists of qualified applicants, Lewis took steps to overcome their exclusion.”
