'Zero Tolerance' Line On Oxfam Sex Scandal: UK Prime Minister's Office

Oxfam came under criticism after various cases of sexual harassment were reported

LONDON:  Britain's government needs to do more to make charities strengthen safeguarding procedures to ensure the "horrific behaviour" of some members of Oxfam International is not repeated, a spokesman for the prime minister said.

Theresa May's spokesman told reporters that international aid minister Penny Mordaunt was meeting Oxfam representatives on Monday to consider what further steps needed to be taken over a sexual misconduct scandal in Haiti.
