Oxfam criticized for handling of Haiti sex claims


    The Charity Commission has criticized Oxfam for its handling of allegations of serious sexual misconduct by its staff in Haiti.

    According to a BBC report, four workers were fired after claims that prostitutes were used by staff sent to help victims of the earthquake in 2010.

    The commission said the charity failed to spot signs of a “culture of poor behaviour,” and did not report claims of child abuse.

    Oxfam has repeatedly apologized.
