Oxfam prostitutes SCANDAL: Government officials warn charity will be probed

Oxfam prostitutes SCANDAL: Government officials warn charity will be probed

She said: "It's a complete betrayal, both of the people Oxfam were there to help and also the people who were sent there to do that job - it's a scandal".

The Times' report was based on sources familiar with the organization's work in Haiti around that time as well as a report summarizing an internal Oxfam investigation into the allegations.

Ministers have launched an investigation into claims that foreign aid officials brushed off allegations of child abuse committed by aid workers.

The Times reported Friday that the government secretary responsible for charity regulation was calling for Oxfam to provide more information about the staffers who had paid for sex in Haiti.

It is a "complete betrayal of both the people Oxfam were there to help and also the people that sent them there to do that job", Britain's global development secretary, Penny Mordaunt, told BBC News, which noted that the nonprofit received $44 million in government funds a year ago. It said significant improvements have already been made since 2011.

Caroline Thomson, Oxfam's chairwoman of trustees in the United Kingdom, said the charity was "ashamed" of what had happened in Haiti, adding that it prides itself on "being a transparent organisation".

When it happened, she said, new whistle-blowing procedures, safeguarding practises and training were put in place.

Oxfam Chief Executive Mark Goldring said Saturday it receives less than 10 percent of its funding from DFID and hoped to continue working with the department while rebuilding trust with the public.

"I have so much respect for Oxfam, they do great work, but this is a sector-wide problem".

During the probe, Oxfam dismissed four staff members and another three resigned, including van Hauwermeiren.

She told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show: I am affording them the opportunity to tell me in person what they did after these events and I'm going to be looking to see if they are displaying the moral leadership that I think they need to now.

It said Oxfam's leaders had "showed a lack of judgement" in their handling of the matter and their level of openness with the government and Charity Commission.

Ms Mordaunt said it was her "absolute priority" to keep the world's most vulnerable people safe from harm.

Ms Mordaunt announced she would meet the charity on Monday to discuss the case, and said: 'If the moral leadership at the top of the organisation is not there then we cannot have you as a partner'.

Hundreds of people, many of them Haitian, demonstrate against racism in Times Square on Martin Luther King (MLK) Day on January 15, 2018 in New York City. Asked if that was a lie, Mordaunt said: "Well, quite".

In a further warning to the charity, she said: "If they do not hand over all the information that they have from their investigation and subsequently to the relevant authorities, including the Charity Commission and prosecuting authorities, then I can not work with them any more as an aid delivery partner".

"What is so disturbing about Oxfam is that when this was reported to them, they completely failed to do the right thing", she said.
