>> Haiti's president says the sex scandal that has embroiled Oxfam is just the tip of the iceberg. Jovenel Moïse told Reuters many aid organizations are guilty of covering up misconduct by their workers in his country, and that the dignity of the Haitian people had been trampled on. Aid organizations flocked to Haiti after a devastating 2010 earthquake.
But Moïse only named the charity, Doctors Without Borders, says Reuters Joseph Doza.>> He said that we repatriated about 17 staff members for reason they did not specify. There were repatriated for misconduct without any further detail. But he also stressed the problem of aid workers exploiting people with vulnerability.
>> Doctors Without Borders said it was looking into Moïse's comments and welcomes scrutiny on the sector. On Wednesday, it said it had fired 19 people last year over cases of sexual harassment. Oxfam has neither confirmed nor denied a report that some of its staff paid for sex in Haiti, where prostitution is a crime.
Moïse called for a broader investigation into aid work in the country.>> The president pointed out the fact that in Haiti, some 2006 and 2017, the international community spent about $12 billion in Haiti. And he's saying that this money, you can see the results of what is being done with that money.
And he's saying that from now on they want to make sure that every dollar that is spent, it is spent where the government says it needs it and it has to be done in transparency.>> The Oxfam scandal has shaken the aid sector with Britain and the European Union reviewing their funding.
