In an effort to swing International Whaling Commission (IWC) votes in their favor Japan is offering bribes and prostitutes, according to London’s Sunday Times.

This month members of the IWC will converge at an annual meeting in Agadir, Morocco to vote on lifting a worldwide whaling moratorium that has been in place for 24 years. The plan, if approved, would allow Japan to legally hunt whales for commercial purposes around Antarctica and in the North Pacific.

An undercover investigation conducted by the Sunday Times found that officials from pro-whaling nations were offered bribes ranging from cash payments to call girls in exchange for votes on the IWC in favor of Japan.

While the newspaper claims to have filmed evidence, Japan denies the allegations.

Additionally during the investigation, reporters from the Times posed “as representatives of a billionaire conservationist” and were able to convince six small nations to consider selling their votes. The governments of St Kitts and Nevis, the Marshall Islands, Kiribati, Grenada, Republic of Guinea, and Ivory Coast all entered negotiations to support Japan’s desire to slaughter whales in exchange for money and “good girls.”
