No worries about being Australian... You're not alone!

Oxfam says Aceh money 'missing'

The UK-based aid organisation Oxfam has temporarily shut down some of its operations in the tsunami-devastated Indonesian province of Aceh.

Oxfam said it had found evidence that money had gone missing.

Despite widespread fears that aid money for Aceh would be lost to corruption, this is the first time there has been any solid indication of graft.

Oxfam said it hoped to have its programmes back up and running in the next few weeks.

Oxfam discovered the money was missing in an internal audit.

Oxfam says it has shut down its non-emergency programmes in the districts of Banda Aceh and neighbouring Aceh Besar after finding evidence that money had gone missing.

Its large house-building and livelihood support programmes will be worst affected, but the agency says it will continue delivering vital supplies of drinking water to the displaced and clearing rubbish to avoid causing immediate hardship to its beneficiaries.

Reassurance

Oxfam is still investigating how much money has gone missing and how it was taken, but says it believes that it could amount to tens of thousands of dollars out of an overall budget of some 30m last year.

The agency says it hopes to resume the programmes as soon as the investigation is finished.

Despite government attempts to curb corruption, Indonesia has a reputation for entrenched graft at all levels of society.

Given the fears that donated money would go missing, aid organisations like Oxfam have put extraordinary controls in place to spot any irregularities.

Observers say that Oxfam's readiness to report its suspicions and address the problem - and the fact that no solid evidence of corruption has emerged else where - is likely to reassure donors rather than put them off.
