Sex scandal claims CEO
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.
