    Minnie Driver quits Oxfam after sex allegations.

    Oxfam: Minnie Driver, a previously strong supporter of Oxfam, withdraws support over Haiti scandal.

    Actress Minnie Driver has stood down from her role as a celebrity ambassador for Oxfam.

    This follows claims that staff for the charity in Haiti and other countries paid vulnerable people for sex.

    In a statement Ms Driver said she was "nothing short of horrified" by the allegations.

    Oxfam said it was "grateful" for Ms Driver's commitment and that it was "more committed now than ever to learn from our mistakes".

    The British charity is accused of concealing the findings of an inquiry into claims staff used prostitutes while delivering aid in Haiti in 2011.

    It seems that trying to cover up such events is doing Oxfam more harm than good and if these incidents eventually and fully come out into the public domain they are going to do Oxfam and many other similar big charity organisations great harm.

    More to come from this is the future I think.

    I think you are right Paps as I suspect that this might just be the tip of the iceberg if we were to look deeper.

    Yes Zathrus, the freedom that the charity bosses on the ground have in third world and disaster areas means that they are not often watched as closely as they should be.

    Maybe they will be now ?

    And with Bishop Desmond Tutu also jumping ship this is building into one of the biggest scandals that has ever come into the news.

    Where to next I wonder ?

    If nothing else comes out of this it should mean that the organisers of the "on-the-ground" actions of these charities should be much better organised and watched.

    I think there will be several other celebrities ending their links with OXFAM and other Aid Agencies.

    And, when they do, this will damage OXFAM and all of the other aid agencies.

    If it teaches them to better police their recruiting system, then it is all to the good.
