Guadalajara (Mexico), July 16 (IANS/EFE) At least five female personnel of the sex-crime unit of the Attorney General's Office in the western Mexican state of Jalisco will be investigated for partying in the office with male strippers, authorities said.

Seen in a video released Thursday are the workers at the bachelorette party of a friend, who appears dancing and carrying on with one of the strippers.

The party apparently took place during working hours at the facilities of the unit of the AG's office that handles cases of abuse, exploitation and mistreatment of minors, the Jalisco State Human Rights Commission, or CEDHJ, said.

The AG's office has not ruled officially on the matter, which apparently occurred six months ago.

Two male strippers are seen in the pictures wearing black underwear, dark glasses and black hats. One of them urges the women to bite his companion.

The Jalisco State Human Rights Commission has opened an investigation of the incident, since what happened seems to break the law of public servants, chairman Felipe de Jesus Alvarez said.

He said that such behaviour could damage public service in that it represents an abuse of authority.
