Posted on
Elizabeth Davis looks at the statutory inquiries for the Africa Relief Trust, the Spiritualist Association of Great Britain and the Christ Embassy.

Africa Relief Trust

The Charity Commission has opened a statutory inquiry into Africa Relief Trust to "examine regulatory concerns including whether the charity trustees have properly discharged their trustee duties when making decisions to enter into tenancy agreements and occupy those properties to further their charitable purposes and whether any benefit to the landlord or other parties is incidental to that".

The Spiritualist Association of Great Britain (formerly The Marylebone Spiritualist Association) Limited

The Charity Commission has opened a statutory inquiry into The Spiritualist Association of Great Britain (Formerly The Marylebone Spiritualist Association) Limited to "examine whether, and to what extent, there was mismanagement or misconduct on the part of the trustees. This will include whether the trustees complied with their legal obligations and fiduciary duties as trustees when disposing of a charitable asset."

Christ Embassy

The Charity Commission has opened a statutory inquiry into Christ Embassy to "examine the regulatory concerns raised and determine whether there ha been any mismanagement or misconduct on behalf of the charity trustees; to establish whether charitable funds have been properly applied and take appropriate remedial action if necessary."
