Oxfam Confirms Seven New Sex Allegations In High Street Shops

Oxfam Confirms Seven New Sex Allegations In High Street Shops

"Of those, 16 are in our worldwide programs", Goldring told the committee, according to Sky News. In an interview last week in The Guardian, Goldring said the charity was being attacked as if "babies had been murdered in their cots".

In addition, a Haitian quake victim revealed disgraced Oxfam official Roland van Hauwermeiren had sex with her when she was just 17.

The committee called the urgent session amid fury over Oxfam's response to allegations that some of its staff in Haiti used prostitutes, including some who may have been minors.

When pressed on the ages of the women involved, Goldring said Oxfam's own investigations found no women were under 18, the legal age of consent in Haiti.

It read: "Need better mechanisms for informing other regions/affiliates/agencies of behavioural issued with staff when they move and to avoid "recycling" poor performers/problem staff".

Oxfam said today it was investigating 26 new cases of sexual misconduct which had been reported since a scandal broke earlier this month over its handling of a 2011 case in Haiti.

Representatives from Save the Children and the Department for International Development will also be quizzed. Some ugly men came into our organisation and abused the trust of the British people, the supporters, But they were able to get away, to get a recommendation to leave. I was thinking about incredible work I have seen Oxfam do around world, recently with refugees from Myanmar.

"We are open to collaborate as much as we can, in further investigations, as necessary with the Haitian government", Ticehurst said.

The parliamentary hearing comes in the wake of the news of resignations and dismissals of Oxfam staff in Haiti following allegations of "sex parties" involving prostitutes.

The revelations have put Oxfam's government funding under threat and prompted the Charity Commission to launch a statutory inquiry. We have been very clear that we will not work with any organisation that does not live up to the high standards on safeguarding and protection that we require.

Haiti was devastated by an natural disaster in 2010. Describing one assault, she told the BBC: 'He literally just pinned me up against the wall.

She said he "got mad" when she succeeded and threw a glass at her. "I was thinking about fantastic work I've seen Oxfam do across the world, most recently with refugees coming from Myanmar", he said. "We should have said "Please call us - there is cause for concern".

Pauline Latham, a member of the panel and Conservative MP for Mid Derbyshire, accused Oxfam of "dealing with women and girls as though they are trinkets".

He has since said he is "deeply sorry" for these comments.
