Unconfirmed revelation circulating on Facebook about Calais aid workers volunteering in the Jungle of having sex with migrants, some of whom are believed to be underage. According to the whistle blower, some volunteers are patronizing the service of the Jungle camp prostitutes, while others have multiple partners in one day.
Reports have it that aid workers have complained that unscrupulous volunteers are treating the camp like a 'free for all festival' and 'find it difficult to keep it in their pants'. The allegations surfaced on a Facebook thread concerning the People to People Solidarity group, which has since been deleted.
It was revealed that female volunteers were more likely to have sex with male migrants than any other combination. . One male volunteer had to be 'persuaded by other male volunteers' against returning due to his 'inappropriate behaviour with female refugees'.
The whistle blower claimed: 'I have heard of boys, believed to be under the age of consent, having sex with volunteers. 'I have heard stories of men using the prostitutes in the Jungle too. I have heard of volunteers having sex with multiple partners in one day, only to carry on in the same vein the following day. 'And I also know, that I'm only hearing a small part of a wider scale of abuse.'
Several volunteers severely criticised the whistleblower for discussing the abuse allegations in an open forum. According to the Independent, some volunteers believe sexual relationships between aid workers and refugees is 'natural' while others believe it breaks the 'usual codes of conduct'.
