Oxfam official ‘paid for sex’, others bullied witness: Inquiry

AFP

British aid charity Oxfam yesterday released its internal report into a scandal in Haiti that has shattered its reputation, revealing that a former top official admitted to paying for sex and three staff physically threatened a witness, reports AFP from London. The 2011 report into aid workers deployed to Haiti following the devastating earthquake the previous year, revealed that seven staff were accused of using prostitutes at an Oxfam-funded residence. Country director Roland Van Hauwermeiren admitted paying for sex and was offered a "phased and dignified exit" of resignation if he cooperated with the inquiry. The report also said three Oxfam employees were involved in "physically threatening and intimidating" a witness who spoke to the investigators. Four staff were fired for gross misconduct and three others, including Van Hauwermeiren, were allowed to quit.
