Nobody else has mentioned them yet...

Oxfam that is.

 

So after all the other sleaze scandals that keep coming up over the years we now have one of our largest and (apparently) respectable charities dragged into it too. Not only that but they've also apparently (DM article claim) had incidents in their stores of staff harassing people and now a whistleblower has claimed that none of their volunteers have ever been checked out for criminal records etc (in fairness i doubt many charities would put volunteers through that).

So after the orgies that have been paid for by public donations, governments and even fruit juice sales has come to light, can we trust anyone in any industry / high ranking position?

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Absolute power corrupts absolutely, you can't trust anyone with power, cos they're probably abusing it already and we don't even know it... Smiley

Re: Nobody else has mentioned them yet...

But isn't it normal that people visiting a country for a long time tend to go "native".

Do things that may be considered nothing out of the ordinary there but frowned upon here.

Re: Nobody else has mentioned them yet...

I'm pretty sure child rape is frowned upon in most places.

@dvorak

While I am aware that there have been accusations of child rape, I have yet to see any evidence of that. Do you have such evidence, or are you just joining in the mud-slinging?

I'm not sure I'm slinging mud? I stated that child rape is frowned upon in most places.
Do you disagree?

There are allegations that some of the prostitutes were under the age of consent.

That may be so but I'm still not sure how that relates to my post.

Re: Nobody else has mentioned them yet...

Locals apparently named the property concerned the whorehouse.

There appears to be plenty of witnesses to it all.

As dvorak says, the simple fact is that whatever the conclusion of this issue, child rape in any country is usually heavily frowned on (and yes i seem to recall suggestions that there were underage girls involved though i can't remember where i read it).

Re: Nobody else has mentioned them yet...

@billnotben because you mentioned things happened that might not be frowned upon. I'm merely pointing out that actually, yes things could have happened that are very frowned upon.

Yes I understand that part so I'll leave it there and refrain from plucking a list of things to be frowned upon from thin air.

Re: Nobody else has mentioned them yet...

the problem with the Oxfam scandal is this isn't the first time even wiht the same charity group in the same country.... there was a similar story back in 2010 again in hati and there have been several others over the years, most of them seem to have the exact same effect, a few high profile leadership members resign and it all dies down....

 

i doubt this will be any different unless someone actually starts taking an axe to the abomination that is oxfam

just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you
