Islamic Centre of England was closed until further notice
RELIGIOUS NEWS AGENCY (REDNA) – The Islamic Centre of England is reported to have shut its doors and suspended daily prayers until further notice, three weeks after the Charity Commission sent in an interim manager.
The Telegraph reports that the suspension was announced in a notice on its locked gates, which was later removed.
Reporters were told it would last two or three days. The Charity Commission took action after issuing an official warning to trustees, over failure to comply with legal duties and failure to protect the charity’s assets.
The interim manager from a law firm will conduct a review of the charity’s governance and administration and make recommendations to the Commission.
The Telegraph says two Tory MPS have accused the charity of being the London office of the Iranian regime.
