3:07 pm
sex parties while on a mission in haiti after the nation's devastating twenty ten earthquake the times of london quoted sources saying that male charity workers threw parties of prostitutes all living in a guest house rented by oxfam it's from the british government more all charities that receive u.k. aid they need to tackle sexual misconduct amongst their staff or face having their funding cut oxfam which is based in britain is denying claims of a cover up over the alleged misconduct but his ambassador to the u.k. says he doesn't believe that it is clear it's a corrupt is. the fact that those folks we have to leave the country you know any punishment that would even informing will of a haitian before it is about that it was a cultural and now decide that they did such a crime all there was such
3:08 pm
a cause now we are wondering how many of those cases are still being happening in haiti we don't know. well that was the ambassador from haiti to the u.k. i'm joined now in the studio by dr urine kalinski he's the head of advocacy and campaigns for oxfam germany i want to give you a chance to respond to these allegations that we just heard from the haitian ambassador did oxfam cover up this behavior i think our colleague from oxford. which i would see over in haiti at the time in two thousand and eleven didn't come up say as soon as he became of the gay sions. report to the management inside the start that the investigation internal investigation and say put out a press release on august fifth. two thousand and eleven and saying that they are undergoing disease investigation in four weeks later on september the fifth issued
3:09 pm
another press statement. toward the public versus finding what the thought was a finding of those investigations some covered up i don't think oxfam covered up but you don't deny that this happened that oxfam workers were hiring process here it's horrible and i'm personally very kind of angry and frustrated that this happens because such a very very bad misbehavior of a few puts the whole organization is in disrepute and what else on that and he gave will be brought safe drinking water to hundreds of thousands of people and after just three months and then the break broke disappointed one point two million people in haiti so it was great stuff in such a such misbehavior of a few is outrageous and that's completely that misses it's completely you can see everything what oxfam stands for isn't just misbehavior of a few because today allegations have come out very similar allegations regarding prostitutes in chad or oxfam was also active does oxfam have
3:10 pm
a cultural problem where hiring prostitutes is considered ok on field appointments and let me say this again is has a code of conduct that it's not allowed to come in to sex workers or through getting in touch with. you and your and your mission so it's completely against of values and code of conduct i think those that took the incident very seriously in two thousand and eleven and we improved our procedures and safeguarding measures put in place it did it good safeguarding teen put in place. and is today as of today and people see safeguarding measures as the best practice in the sector so i think of course there was a problem as the. problems i don't deny that but i think the whole sector has to deal with it. and transparency is the first step raising the venice creating a venice and then kind of doings of right steps to make sure to try to prevent such
3:11 pm
