CEO of scandal-plagued charity to resign
Oxfam’s chief executive is to quit after the charity’s cover-up of the Haiti sexual exploitation scandal. Mark Goldring, 61, spoke of the ‘‘very public exposure of Oxfam’s past failings’’ as he said he would leave the global aid agency at the end of the year. He will not receive a severance package. The Times disclosed this year that seven senior Oxfam staff working in Haiti had been sacked or allowed to resign after an investigation into allegations of paying young women for sex, downloading pornography, bullying and intimidation. Among those allowed to quit was the country director Roland van Hauwermeiren, 68, who later admitted that he had sex with a young Haitian woman after giving her family baby milk and nappies.
