Ban on Ox­fam GB from Haiti

The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - NEWS -

Haiti’s gov­ern­ment has with­drawn Ox­fam GB’s right to work in the coun­try af­ter al­le­ga­tions of sex­ual mis­con­duct by the char­ity’s staff.

Ox­fam was plunged into cri­sis in Fe­bru­ary when it emerged some of its work­ers en­gaged in “sex par­ties” with pros­ti­tutes in the af­ter­math of 2010’s earth­quake in the Caribbean coun­try.

The Haitian gov­ern­ment said the de­ci­sion to ban Ox­fam GB from work­ing in the coun­try was due to a vi­o­la­tion of laws.

The for­mer head of Ox­fam’s op­er­a­tions in Haiti ad­mit­ted hav­ing a sex­ual re­la­tion­ship with a woman he helped in 2010 but de­nied us­ing pros­ti­tutes.
