Diana charity Mines Advisory Group hit by sex scandal claims
Anti-landmine group ‘ignored’ complaints that staff used prostitutes
A landmine charity championed by Diana, Princess of Wales and Prince Harry has apologised for its failure to investigate sufficiently claims that some members of its staff were regularly paying women for sex.
Mines Advisory Group (Mag) is the latest British charity to be drawn into the unfolding sex abuse scandal amid claims it ignored complaints about the “habitual use” of prostitutes by some members of its staff in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
