Oxfam sacked Haiti chief following allegations of "mismanagement"

15 February 2018, 06:52 | Glen Norman

The international aid group said it wanted to be ‘transparent’ about the abuse

Médecins Sans Frontières fired 19 people over sex abuse claims

She said Oxfam had failed to show moral leadership and properly inform donors, regulators and prosecutors of the allegations.

Mr Van Hauwermeiren said there had been "a lot of lies and exaggerations" about his time in Haiti.

"Parties every week? Fancy villas?"

He indicated the revelations had taken a personal toll, telling the paper: "It is especially bad that my family no longer want to see me".

Oxfam has neither confirmed nor denied that specific account but has said an internal investigation in 2011 confirmed sexual misconduct occurred, and it has apologised. "Women paid with money from the organisation?" Now Cafod has sacked a former Oxfam employee caught up in the scandal.

The latest financial report shows the company continues to increase its revenue while making progress on cutting its loss. The company shared the numbers with technology news site the Information after the call and confirmed them to Bloomberg .

The charity has been accused of concealing the findings of an inquiry into claims staff used prostitutes while delivering aid in Haiti in 2011.

Oxfam later confirmed it sacked its country director in Haiti past year following allegations of mismanagement and inappropriate behaviour.

Four members of staff were dismissed and three, including county director Roland van Hauwermeiren, resigned before the end of the probe.

But it stressed the dismissal of Damien Berrendorf, who served as the Oxfam's country director in Haiti from 2012 to 2017, was "not related to sexual misconduct" and was "not connected to the case in 2011".

Oxfam has proved it can't be trusted with our hard-earned cash so it's time this Government stopped funding its failure and debauchery.

Jagan said the party would adopt the slogan of "Hoda mana hakku, package tho mosapovaddu" (Special category status is our right; don't get cheated with special financial package).

The charity sector has come under increased scrutiny in Britain after the UK's worldwide development secretary Penny Mordaunt threatened to cut funding to any organisation that fails to ensure the highest standards are met on its staff members behaviour.

It comes as International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt was due to meet director-general of the National Crime Agency (NCA) Lynne Owens to discuss how they could jointly tackle sexual exploitation and abuse.

Oxfam would not respond to the remarks Mr van Hauwermeiren's made to Belgian media.

In his first public response to last week's accusations of sex parties during his time running the charity's operations in Haiti after the 2010 natural disaster, Roland Van Hauwermeiren was quoted as also telling De Standaard reporters who called at his apartment on the Belgian coast that his family had cut him off.

Speaking at the NME Awards, he told the Press Association: "We've raised millions through the years with Oxfam - six million quid and everyone's said what a wonderful charity they are and we still support them".
