Oxfam Accused of Infiltrating China

Sing Tao Daily, Posted: Feb 25, 2010

HONG KONG The Chinese Education Ministry is accusing the Hong Kong branch of Oxfam of infiltrating China with a hidden agenda. According to Sing Tao Daily, the education ministry sent a letter to high schools across China encouraging them to break ties with the international poverty-fighting organization. The letter, which was posted on Beijing's Minzu University's job search site on Feb. 4, accused Oxfam's Hong Kong branch of recruiting Chinese college students majoring in social work to intern at civil rights advocacy organizations. The Chinese Education Ministry called Oxfams chairman a stalwart of the opposition faction, and argued that educational institutions should end their exchanges with the organization. However, Oxfam spokespeople said they not received any such message from the Chinese government about their internship program. Qin Gang, a spokesman for China's Foreign Ministry, said he did not have enough information about the situation but he said that China welcomes non-governmental organizations to participate in their development under the condition that they obey Chinese laws.
