Justin Forsyth, Ex-Save the Children chief executive has resigned from UNICEF stating that he does not want coverage of his past to “damage” the charities.
According to foreign media, Forsyth faced three complaints of inappropriate behaviour towards female staff before leaving Save the Children
He was accused of sending inappropriate texts and commenting on what young female staff were wearing.
Forsyth states that he “apologized unreservedly” to the three workers at time.
According to Forsyth, the reason for his resignation as UNICEF’s deputy director was not because of what he described as the mistake he made in his former role at Save the Children.
