5:04 pm
could have happened one version is that there could have been an air collision even though the ministry of emergency services says that there has been no debris from a helicopter found on the site that was the one of the versions that it could have collided the plane could have collided with a helicopter and other sources are saying that the pilot radioed in about technical difficulties so it does seem to have been an accident and a rather tragic one a very tragic accident seventy one people there in moscow and really sure and thank you for bringing us up to date. well sex scandal is engulfing one of the world's best known charities oxfam of irish newspaper has reported that expense staff illegally hired prostitutes for sex parties well they were on a mission to haiti after the nation's devastating earthquake and the times of london quoted sources saying that male charity workers threw parties with prostitutes while they were living in

a guest house rented by oxfam whole thing is prompt the british government to one charities that receive aid that they need to tackle sexual misconduct amongst their staff or have their funding cut oxfam is based in britain and it's denying claims of a cover up over this alleged misconduct but haiti's ambassador to the isn't buying that it is. corruptors. the fact that those folks look to the leave the country you wrote in the punishment without even informing really of a haitian authorities about that it was a coral and now defunct that they did such a crime all there was such a cause now we are wondering how many of those cases are still being helped 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 your own kalinski he's the head of advocacy and
5:06 pm
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. the. time in two thousand and eleven didn't come up. as soon as the became event of the geishas we have reported a management inside the started an investigation into an investigation and said put out a press release on august fifth. to two thousand and eleven and seeing that they are undergoing this investigation in four weeks later on september the fifth issued another press statement. toward the public versus finding what the thought was a finding of those investigations i don't think i'm covered up 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
5:07 pm
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 tonight he gave will be brought. safe drinking water to hundreds of thousands of people and after just three months and then the break. disappointed one point two million people in haiti so it was great stuff great drug in such a such misbehavior of a few is outrageous and that's completely that mrs is completely you can see everything what some 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 a cultural problem where hiring prostitutes is considered ok on field appointments and let me say this again is has a code of conduct connect that it's not allowed to come into to sex workers or to get in touch with. you and your and your mission so it's completely against of
5:08 pm
values and our 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 get it safe got into new put in place. and as today as of today of people 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 awareness creating a venice and then kind of doings of right steps to make sure or to try to prevent such things happens in the future oxfam receives taxpayer funding from the british government also receives donations what do you say to viewers who are watching this thinking why should i give any money to oxfam i mean there was no fraud involved in two thousand and eleven than when these things happened or some kind of spent all
5:09 pm
the money it's got from the government from private donors from the un from the european union spent the money to help people in haiti is it sure and you can assure people and i think of some as a great organization i mean i think it's awesome for twenty five years now and i'm personally very deeply and i mean i'm very angry about this and i do my very best at what i could do here talks in germany to make sure these things will not happen again we do appreciate you coming in and facing these allegations on behalf of your organization that's dr young lenski is that of advocacy and campaigns for oxfam germany thanks for being with us. here's a look now at some of the other stories making news around the world at least nine people have died in a gun battle between the indian army and separatists in the disputed region of kashmir militants stormed an army camp there on saturday no group has claimed responsibility but the indian army says pro pakistani militants carried out the assault. manned mars government says it will take action against ten members of the
