Zimbabwe: ICMC staff members dismissed

Briefing notes

Zimbabwe: ICMC staff members dismissed

12 July 2002

The International Catholic Migration Commission reported earlier this week that two ICMC staff members were dismissed for alleged sexual misconduct against refugees in Zimbabwe's Tongogara camp. UNHCR is distressed by this news and supports and welcomes ICMC's swift action to address the problem. The High Commissioner reiterates that there is absolutely no place in the humanitarian community for those who exploit others, and again emphasises the need for strict adherence to a "zero tolerance" policy.
