Oxfam Confirms Seven New Sex Allegations In High Street Shops

He is facing questions from MPs on the International Development Committee about the sexual misconduct of some staff after the 2010 Haiti quake.
The British charity has been gripped by a scandal alleging that senior staff, including the former Haiti Country Director Roland van Hauwermeiren hired prostitutes at Oxfam premises after the 2010 earthquakes in the country.
Oxfam has apologised to Haiti and vowed to do better while handing over the internal report on allegations at a meeting with its minister of planning.
Ambassadors such as Archbishop Desmond Tutu have cut ties with the organization as more revelations came out - such as the fact that Van Hauwermeiren, who denies paying for sex, and others were allowed quiet dismissals and resignations.
Oxfam has battled to contain the fall-out from the scandal, and senior officials from the charity apologised over and again for the scandal and how it was handled during a hearing with lawmakers that lasted almost two hours.

Made public earlier in the day, Oxfam's 2011 report into the behaviour of aid workers sent to Haiti revealed that three staff had physically threatened a witness in the prostitution investigation.
The director of operations in the country admitted using sex workers in his charity-funded accommodation but was given a "phased and dignified exit" as long as he fully cooperated with the investigation, Oxfam said in the report. It does not say whether Oxfam concluded that the claims of mistreatment of colleagues were true, but it says that both of the accused were among four employees "dismissed for gross misconduct", and that one of them was guilty of "failure to protect staff".
Goldring also apologised for his comment about "murdering babies in cots" that he made while defending the organisation.
Earlier this month, reports surfaced that Oxfam employees paid sex workers while on an aid mission following Haiti's devastating natural disaster in 2010.
The executive has submitted to questions from members of different parties along with Winnie Byanyima, executive director of Oxfam International, and Caroline Thomson, president of Foundation.
"That's shocking", she said.
Oxfam executives "betrayed the public" and may have deliberately misled charity regulators and the authorities, the International Development Secretary has said. The Chairman of Committee, Stephen Twigg, has ensured that y will carry out a thorough investigation into sexual misconduct in global aid sector.
All names in the report have been redacted apart from that of van Hauwermeiren, a 68-year-old Belgian who last week released a letter defending himself after the scandal broke.
Details of the scandal surfaced earlier this month and have engulfed Oxfam, drawing widespread condemnation and putting its funding at risk.
