Mother's Day striptease investigated

LIMA (Reuters) - Peruvian officials launched an investigation on Tuesday into a Mother’s Day striptease performance by a dance troupe in a Lima auditorium owned by the national judiciary.

Peru’s Superior Court, just one step below the Supreme Court in the judicial hierarchy, issued a statement condemning what it described as a “shameful incident”.

The striptease took place last week during an event organized by a trade union which represents judicial workers.

Local media reports said that when the dancers peeled off their clothes to the sound of Mexican music they were heckled and whistled at by spectators, most of whom were women.

Peru, along with many other countries, celebrated Mother’s Day on Sunday.
