Female aid workers have been found committing sex acts on children at a refugee centre.
Officials apparently knew for months that one worker at the Børnecenter Tullebølle children’s asylum centre in Denmark had engaged in sexual activity with underage residents, but they failed to do anything about it.
Some of the acts were photographed.
One worker was videotaped performing oral sex on at least one refugee and full intercourse with one boy at the centre in Tranekær.
Two other female workers are said to have “violated” other boys at the centre.
Sisi Eibye, head of the asylum programme at Langeland Municipality in Denmark, has been fired as a result of the scandal. She is not one of the women involved in abusing the children.
Police are now investigating.
The Danish Immigration Service (DIS) has announced it will shut down the children’s centre because of the claims.
It houses about 40 boys.
In September Heat Street reported claims that British workers were travelling to the Calais Jungle to have sex with migrants. Sometimes they supposedly had multiple partners in one day.
Other aid workers complained of unscrupulous volunteers treating the now defunct camp like a ‘free for all festival’ and said some volunteers ‘find it difficult to keep it in their pants’.
The allegations emerged on a Facebook thread concerning the People to People Solidarity group. It has since been deleted.
It was claimed that female volunteers were more likely to have sex with male migrants than vice versa.
The UNHCR said it has a ‘zero tolerance’ policy concerning the sexual exploitation of refugees in such camps.
