Red Cross reports misconduct

The International Committee of the Red Cross has joined the list of prominent charities that have uncovered sexual misconduct among staff. ICRC Director-General Yves Daccord says 21 staff members have resigned or been fired since 2015 after violating policy by paying for sexual services. Two others did not have their contracts renewed. “This behavior is a betrayal of the people and the communities we are there to serve,” he said. Daccord said because of the decentralized nature of the sprawling aid agency, which has over 17,000 employees worldwide, it is possible that other incidents were not reported.

PANAMA

Trump hotel execs delay exit

One of President Donald Trump’s family businesses is battling an effort to physically evict its team of executives from a luxury hotel in Panama where they manage operations, and police have been called to keep the peace, the Associated Press has learned. Witnesses told the AP they saw Trump’s executives carrying files to a room for shredding. Representatives of the hotel owners’ association formally sought to fire Trump’s management team Thursday by hand-delivering termination notices to them at the Trump International Hotel and Tower, according to a Panamanian legal complaint filed by Orestes Fintiklis, who controls 202 of the property’s 369 hotel units. Trump’s managers retreated behind the glass walls of an office where they were seen carrying files to an area where the sounds of a shredding machine could be heard, according to two witnesses aligned with the owners.
