The FBI has recalled several of its employees working in cities across Asia amid allegations of prostitution and wild parties, the Wall Street Journal reports.
The Justice Department’s inspector general is investigating FBI personnel in about half a dozen cities, including in East and Southeast Asia.
Details of the allegations were murky because the allegations of misconduct are under investigation.
“Upon learning of these allegations of misconduct, action was taken to reassign certain personnel to non-operational roles while the allegations are reviewed,” the FBI said in a statement to CNN. “No additional information will be provided, as the FBI has referred the matter to the DOJ Office of Inspector General.”
The bureau added, “All FBI employees are held to the highest standards of conduct, and allegations against any employee are taken very seriously.”
