Charity Commission and Government have questions to answer on Oxfam scandal – Kate Osamor

Kate Osamor MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for International Development, commenting on yesterday’s statement by whistleblower Helen Evans, Oxfam’s former head of safeguarding, said:


“The Charity Commission and government departments have serious questions to answer: why did they take no action in response to concerns raised by Helen Evans in June 2015 and August 2015? Are there other whistleblowers that have brought safeguarding concerns to the Charity Commission only to be ignored? 


“It is crucial that we now understand how far this appalling scandal reaches, and whether the Charity Commission is operating effectively as an independent regulator.”
