Tonight at ten, Oxfam is told it

could lose tax payer funding,

0:00:080:00:11

following the scandal involving aid

workers and prostitutes.

0:00:110:00:14

The International Development

Secretary says the charity lied

0:00:140:00:22

about the full details

of what went on in Haiti

0:00:220:00:24

seven years ago.

0:00:240:00:25

If the moral leadership at the top

of the organisation isn't

0:00:250:00:29

than we cannot have

you as a partner.

0:00:290:00:36

And tonight there are reports other

charities have investigated staff

0:00:360:00:38

over sexual misconduct allegations.

0:00:380:00:39

Also on the programme...

0:00:390:00:41

President Putin orders

a special investigation

0:00:410:00:42

into the crash of a Russian

airliner, killing all

0:00:420:00:44

71 people on board.

0:00:450:00:53

Selling its Brexit plans -

the government is to clarify

0:00:530:00:56

the future relationship it wants

to see between the UK and EU.

0:00:560:00:59

The fate of South Africa's President

Zuma, mired in corruption scandals,

0:00:590:01:01

could be decided tomorrow.

0:01:010:01:02

We have a special report.

0:01:020:01:05

And Scotland get their Six Nations

hopes back on track, with victory

0:01:050:01:08

over France, at Murrayfield.

0:01:080:01:14

Good evening.

0:01:300:01:36

The government has warned it

will cut funding to Oxfam

0:01:360:01:39

if it cannot fully explain

its handling of reports of sexual

0:01:390:01:42

misconduct by aid workers in Haiti.

its handling of reports of sexual

0:01:420:01:44

The International Development

Secretary, Penny Mordant,

0:01:440:01:45

accused the charity of a failure

of "moral leadership," and of having

0:01:450:01:48

lied to her department.

of "moral leadership," and of having

0:01:480:01:50

Oxfam, which received

£32 million from the government

0:01:500:01:53

in the last financial year,

has announced new measures,

0:01:530:01:56

for the prevention and handling

of sexual misconduct cases.

0:01:560:01:58

Our correspondent Angus

Crawford has the details.

0:01:580:02:03

First Haiti, now Chad, one

of the poorest countries on earth.

0:02:030:02:07

New allegations that Oxfam workers

paid local women for sex.

0:02:070:02:12

The charity says it is shocked

and dismayed but can't

0:02:120:02:14

confirm the reports.

and dismayed but can't

0:02:140:02:18

The head of the mission at the time,

Roland van Hauwermeiren,

0:02:180:02:22

was the same man who,

five years later in Haiti, resigned

0:02:220:02:25

after admitting using prostitutes.

five years later in Haiti, resigned

0:02:250:02:26

Four others were sacked.

five years later in Haiti, resigned

0:02:260:02:29

As the scandal grows,

the International Development

0:02:290:02:31

Secretary, Penny Mordaunt,

has sent a strong warning

0:02:310:02:35

to all British charities

receiving public money -

0:02:350:02:39

they will lose the cash

if they can't show a robust

0:02:390:02:43

approach to safeguarding.

if they can't show a robust

0:02:430:02:46

I am very clear, it doesn't matter

whether you have a whistle-blowing

0:02:460:02:49

hotline, it does not matter

if you have got good

0:02:490:02:53

safeguarding practices in place,

if the moral leadership at the top

0:02:530:02:57

of the organisation is not there,

we cannot have you as a partner.

0:02:570:03:01

She said Oxfam didn't

give her department the full facts

0:03:010:03:03

about what happened in Haiti.

give her department the full facts

0:03:030:03:06

It's about, was there any harm done?

give her department the full facts

0:03:060:03:10

Was there any involvement of

the beneficiaries of aid involved?

0:03:100:03:12

Was there any impact on them?

the beneficiaries of aid involved?

0:03:120:03:14

And they told us categorically no.

the beneficiaries of aid involved?

0:03:140:03:15

And they also told us...

the beneficiaries of aid involved?

0:03:150:03:17

That was a lie, wasn't it?

the beneficiaries of aid involved?

0:03:170:03:18

They also told us...

the beneficiaries of aid involved?

0:03:180:03:19

That was a lie, wasn't it?

the beneficiaries of aid involved?

0:03:190:03:20

Well, quite.

the beneficiaries of aid involved?

0:03:200:03:21

At a meeting tomorrow,

the charity will be given one last

0:03:210:03:24

chance or be stripped

of its taxpayer funding.

0:03:240:03:26

BBC News asked Oxfam

for an interview.

0:03:260:03:29

The request was refused.

for an interview.

0:03:290:03:36

But in a statement, its trustees

announced a series of reforms

0:03:360:03:40

to strengthen the vetting

and recruitment of staff,

0:03:400:03:41

set up an external whistle-blowing

helpline, and bring in mandatory

0:03:410:03:43

safeguarding training

for new employees.

0:03:430:03:46

There have been more revelations

about other charities, too.

0:03:460:03:49

Reports that Christian Aid,

Save the Children and the British

0:03:490:03:54

Red Cross have all investigated

staff over sexual

0:03:540:03:56

misconduct allegations.

staff over sexual

0:03:560:04:00

Some who know the sector

well aren't surprised.

0:04:000:04:05

People need to realise that the vast

majority of aid work in crisis

0:04:050:04:08

situations is extraordinary,

it saves lives, it helps people

0:04:080:04:12

who are very vulnerable,

but aid agencies need to do more

0:04:120:04:18

so that the best people

are going into these areas,

0:04:180:04:21

they are monitored, and these people

who are very vulnerable,

0:04:210:04:24

they have a voice too

in how this unfolds.

0:04:240:04:28

The Government is now demanding

every charity receiving taxpayers'

0:04:280:04:30

money disclose all past and current

cases of sexual misconduct.

0:04:300:04:38

A scandal affecting one

charity is now threatening

0:04:380:04:40

to engulf the entire sector.

0:04:540:04:55

As we were hearing, reports that

it's not just Oxfam who has had to

0:04:550:04:56

deal with sexual misconduct

allegations. How big a problem is

0:04:560:05:00

all of this for the sector?

I think

it's very serious, there's clearly a

0:05:000:05:06

debate about how systemic the

problem is. People like Priti Patel,

0:05:060:05:11

the former international Develin

secretary, saying there is a culture

0:05:110:05:13

of denial in the aid sector about

exploitation. Others say that Haiti

0:05:130:05:21

was exceptional, it is wrong to tie

the whole industry. The problem is

0:05:210:05:27

this, aid workers operate in extreme

circumstances and the chain of

0:05:270:05:31

command get very stretched.

Temporary workers, local hires,

0:05:310:05:35

short-term contract and you have

primarily men with very large

0:05:350:05:39

wallets and a lot of influence. In

that environment the abuse is taking

0:05:390:05:43

place. Penny Mordaunt, the

international develop the secretary

0:05:430:05:48

wants to deal with this when she

falls in the Oxfam senior managers,

0:05:480:05:52

to say look, what are you doing

about accountability, safeguards,

0:05:520:05:57

vetting, to make sure this doesn't

happen again? The reason Penny

0:05:570:06:02

Mordaunt is threatening to withdraw

funding not just from Oxfam but all

0:06:020:06:07

charities that receive taxpayers

money is because this has reopened a

0:06:070:06:10

political debate about Britain's £13

billion aid budget. To Sun, a

0:06:100:06:17

demonstration of global reach and

soft power, but to others, a waste

0:06:170:06:20

of money which should be spent at

home -- to some people. The

0:06:200:06:25

government says we are spending it

better, less fraud and waste, all of

0:06:250:06:30

those things. It's harder to make

that argument when you have Oxfam

0:06:300:06:35

workers spending taxpayers money on

orgies with young prostitutes.

Their

critics have been saying the Prime

0:09:520:09:58

Minister has been clicking the can

down the road on the Brexit

0:09:580:10:02

negotiations. That., in the next

three weeks the political equivalent

0:10:020:10:08

of a tin opener will be brought out,

she will set out her vision of the

0:10:080:10:15

relationship she wants with the

European Union and between now and

0:10:150:10:18

then, ministers will be filling in

the detail. There is a snag, before

0:10:180:10:23

you can get to that, the tricky task

of negotiating a transition period

0:10:230:10:27

immediately after Brexit for up to

two years must be completed and it

0:10:270:10:33

looked as if a span was thrown in

the works by the European Commission

0:10:330:10:35

when they produced a paper

suggesting Britain would face

0:10:350:10:39

sanctions unless it followed all EU

rules during that time. David Davies

0:10:390:10:44

the Brexit secretary accused them of

bad faith. Tonight I'm holed there

0:10:440:10:48

is growing confidence that the

European Commission will change its

0:10:480:10:52

approach. David Davis is going to

tour the European capitals, putting

0:10:520:10:56

pressure on them to pressure the

commission to get a good deal.

0:10:560:11:01

Tonight the European Commission

repeated that it was sticking to its

0:11:010:11:04

line that a transition period is not

a given and that phrase sends

0:11:040:11:12

shivers up the spine of British

businesses.

South Africans first

And they knew their land

was on the verge of transformation.

0:12:040:12:08

Today, the man who's

promised to restore

0:12:080:12:10

Mandela's legacy, Cyril Ramaphosa,

walked in his footsteps.

0:12:100:12:16

28 years ago on this

day, Ramaphosa stood

0:12:160:12:20

alongside Mandela on this balcony

and introduced him to the world.

Long live the spirit

of Nelson Mandela.

0:12:340:12:37

Now, very deliberately,

strategically, Mandela

0:12:370:12:42

is invoked, to condemn the excesses

under President Jacob Zuma.

0:12:420:12:49

Nelson Mandela was totally committed

against corruption, against theft,

0:12:490:12:55

against the robbery

of the assets of our people.

We will continue with his legacy.

of the assets of our people.

0:13:010:13:06

For the last week, Cyril Ramaphosa

and Jacob Zuma have been

0:13:060:13:11

negotiating the state

president's exit strategy.

0:13:110:13:13

It seems to come down

to the sequencing of his departure.

0:13:130:13:16

This is a commemoration

but frankly it feels

0:13:160:13:18

like the beginning of

a

0:13:180:13:21

coronation because Cyril Ramaphosa

has given the clearest signal yet

0:13:210:13:25

that the age of Jacob Zuma

is coming to an end.

0:13:250:13:28

Tomorrow, the ANC's National

Executive Committee meets and many

0:13:280:13:32

people here expect and hope that

very soon, Cyril Ramaphosa will be

0:13:320:13:35

this country's president.

very soon, Cyril Ramaphosa will be

was heavily controlled

Can you work out

where the house was?

0:15:560:15:58

He travelled from village

0:15:580:16:01

From the air you could see whole

areas razed to the ground.

0:16:010:16:06

It is where the Myanmar military

and Buddhist mobs are accused

0:16:060:16:09

of pogroms against the Muslim

Rohingya.

0:16:150:16:17

You genuinely have

no idea who did it?

0:16:170:16:22

Some Rohingya are still here

and were brought out by the Myanmar

0:16:220:16:24

authorities to speak to Boris

Johnson.

0:16:240:16:27

All denied any knowledge of who had

destroyed their village.

0:16:270:16:30

This habitation has clearly been

burnt out and deserted.

0:16:300:16:33

One of the Rohingya villagers

that I spoke to a little

0:16:330:16:36

earlier told me in English,

"I hope you understand,

0:16:360:16:39

we are in a very bad

situation and unhappy."

0:16:390:16:41

He didn't dare tell me

who had burnt this village.

0:16:410:16:47

One government minister accompanying

us told me it was what he called

0:16:470:16:52

Rohingya terrorists who turned

on their own people and set

0:16:520:16:54

fire to their homes.

We would be happy to

0:17:240:17:27

Later, I asked the Foreign Secretary

what came of their talks.

0:17:270:17:30

I don't think it has come

through to her, the whole extent,

0:17:300:17:33

the horror of what has happened.

now is some leadership.

France the first to find their flow,

Teddy Thomas quietening the Scottish

faithful but endearing himself

to his teammates.

If much was expected

before defeat to Wales,

much was now demanded,

Sean Maitland answering the call.

Thomas collected his kick.

Greig Laidlaw didn't.

A response again was needed.

Huw Jones found it, and a hole

Musgrave was about to warm the

spirits. Cross-country skiing isn't

one of Britain's traditional Olympic

strengths, their previous best was

Musgrave's 20 night in Sochi where

0:20:480:20:55

he said he skied like a

tranquillised badger. Not here, with

0:20:550:20:58

one lap to go he was in silver medal

position. Could he hang on? Not

quite as the Norwegian raced to God,

Musgrave slowed but with his best

0:21:050:21:13

events to come, this is some feat.

-- raced to gold. Musgrave couldn't

0:21:130:21:20

get a medal for Britain but he gave

the performance of his life.

With a

0:21:200:21:23

lap and a half to go I was feeling

confident of getting a medal but I

0:21:230:21:30

couldn't keep up the pace. Last

night was pretty tough.
