UK threatens to cut Oxfam aid over staff sex scandal

UK-based charity Oxfams second-in-command has quit over allegations that aid workers paid for sex while on assignments in Haiti and Chad.

Penny Lawrence, Oxfams deputy chief executive, said in a statement on Monday she was ashamed of staff members use of prostitutes in both countries and has resigned from her post.

Staff reportedly used prostitutes in Chad at the charitys staff house. Those allegations followed news reports, last week, that Oxfam staff paid sex workers while on an aid mission after Haitis devastating 2010 earthquake.
