Oxfam in crisis talks over sex scandal

OXFAM is being criticised over the way it has managed sex abuse allegations after it was contended staff hired prostitutes in earthquake-torn Haiti.

Oxfam will proceed into crisis talks with the government in relation to the sexual misconduct claims.

The charity has refused to cover up the use of prostitutes by aid employees in 2011, among recent allegations on Sunday night that the charity was conscious of concerns regarding two of the men involved in the Haiti sex scandal.

Oxfams chief executive Paul Goldring received a roast by International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt and threats to extract government funding.

Ms Mordaunt has asserted that the scandal has placed Oxfam’s association with the government at risk.

Mr Goldring is presumed to claim that Oxfam had not enlightened ministers of the allegations in 2011 because it supposed that staff blamed for paying prostitutes were not liable of exchanging ‘sex for aid’.

However, Ms Mordaunt stated that Oxfam had lied and failed in its moral leadership by unsuccessful to completely reveal details of its examination within the misconduct to applicable authorities, she added: “If the moral leadership at the top of the organisation is not there then we cannot have you as a partner.”

Oxfam received £34million in state funding last year.
