Sex scan­dal claims CEO

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - World -

The aid char­ity sex scan­dal has claimed an­other scalp with the res­ig­na­tion of Ox­fam’s chief ex­ec­u­tive.

Mark Goldring, who has been in the role since 2013 and had ac­cused the me­dia of over­play­ing the scan­dal, said he would step down at the end of the year to al­low some­one else to “re­build” the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

He said Ox­fam needed fresh vi­sion and en­ergy af­ter rev­e­la­tions that aid work­ers had used pros­ti­tutes when work­ing in earth­quake-hit Haiti.

Mr Goldring had re­fused all calls to quit, even af­ter a whistle­blower claimed se­nior staff ig­nored warn­ings about the ex­tent of sex abuse.
