The Charity Commission has published its inquiry report into the Fazal Ellahi Charitable Trust.
It found that the charity’s trustees failed to properly manage, administer and protect the charity and its resources, resulting in it being used to facilitate terrorism offences.
As a result of the investigation the trustees were removed and are consequently disqualified.
The charity has also been dissolved.
The statutory inquiry began on 16 April 2018 and, as a result, the Commission made an order, on 7 August 2018, under section 76(3)(g) of the Charities Act 2011 to appoint Jonathan Burchfield, Consultant at national law firm Stone King, as Interim Manager of the charity.
This was the third time that Jonathan had been appointed Interim Manager. He said: “We appreciate the confidence that the Charity Commission showed in Stone King by appointing me and our team.” The Charity Commission’s report can be read online: Decision - Fazal Ellahi Charitable Trust
