Oxfam has been severely criticised by the Charity Commission for the way it dealt with claims of serious sexual misconduct by its staff in Haiti.
The commission said there was a "culture of poor behaviour" at the charity, and issued it with an official warning over its "mismanagement".
Last year Oxfam was accused of covering up claims staff sexually exploited victims of the 2010 earthquake.
Oxfam accepted the findings, saying what happened in Haiti was "shameful".
Its findings included:
◾Oxfam failed to adequately investigate allegations that children as young as 12 or 13 were victims of sexual misconduct by an unnamed charity "boss"
◾It was not as full and frank as it should have been about Haiti, and did not report the allegations of child abuse by staff
◾It treated some senior staff more leniently than junior staff over Haiti
◾The impact on victims and the risk they faced appeared to take second place and was not taken seriously enough
The decision to allow Mr Hauwermeiren to resign without a fuller investigation into his conduct would not be permitted under current policies and practices, she said.
The Times had reported that Oxfam was aware of concerns about the conduct of Mr Van Hauwermeiren and another man when they worked in Chad before they were given senior roles in Haiti.

Who could begin to imagine what horrible diseases, lesions, and infections those people harbor.
And the Clintons were in Haiti up to their tushes...
God help them all. The women and children are victims of circumstance.
I was going to say - I’m no saint, but Haiti would be LAST place on earth I would consider even looking sideways at a woman - well, maybe also Congo, Somalia, Pakistan, all of West Africa.... oh well, never mind.
But, they just received millions after a whole family died in a plane crash . . . .
Oxfam has to be one of the worst “charities” on the planet.
It’s run by SJW equalitarian communists.
