I'm struck to read that a U.S. government agency is administering lie detector tests to Colombian officials - and even moreso that Colombia would fire someone for not taking the test.
Some prosecutors who did take the FBI's test reported having been asked humiliating questions, including ones about their sex lives, El Espectador reported. (The story doesn't make clear whether or not the tests continue.)
"If one is not capable of defending his dignity, neither is he capable of guaranteeing a correct legal process," prosecutor Jesús Albeiro Yepes told El Espectador.

a Secret Agent frisks Colombia's presidential
