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Haiti’s government has withdrawn Oxfam GB’s right to work in the country after allegations of sexual misconduct by the charity’s staff.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