Inquiry starts into Oxfam abuse scandal


Inquiry starts into Oxfam abuse scandal

The UK's Charity Commission is starting an inquiry into the handling of a sex scandal in Haiti by charity Oxfam.

It's claimed Oxfam knew of concerns relating to the use of streetwalkers by aid workers in Haiti in 2011.

And now a whistleblower claims she resigned from the charity after passing on claims of child abuse in Oxfam shops and allegations of sexual exploitation of aid beneficiaries.

The UK government's threatened to cut funding to Oxfam if it can't account for how it handled claims of sexual misconduct.

Correspondent Olly Barratt says the charity's reputation is taking a huge hit.
