The British government officials say a major international charity has a lot of explaining to do for reportedly covering up employee sex parties — including a “full-on Caligula orgy” with Haitian prostitutes after the island’s devastating 2010 earthquake.
To get answers on the allegations against Oxfam, the government is demanding documents on the staffers who paid for sleazy sex in the disaster zone, The Times of London reported.
“These allegations are deeply shocking,” one official told the Times.
Workers including Roland van Hauwermeiren, the country director in Haiti for Britain-based Oxfam until 2011, were allowed to resign without being disciplined, the Times reported Friday.

One source told the newspaper there was footage of a “full-on Caligula orgy” with women in Oxfam T-shirts.
The organization said allegations that some prostitutes were underage were not substantiated.
