British charity Oxfam unveiled an action plan today to tackle sexual misconduct following the “stain” of a prostitution scandal but the man at the centre of the allegations denied organising orgies.

The aid group said it would create an independent commission, which will have the power to access records and interview staff in a bid to stamp out abuse and impose stricter controls on employees.

Oxfam will triple funding to more than $1 million (800,000 euros) to improve safeguarding, while also doubling the number of staff in this area and increasing investment in gender training.
