Afghan Heroes: 2011 complaint to Charity Commission

  1. The damning Commons Public Accounts Committee (PAC) report on the Charity Commission, published 5 February 2014, specifically criticised the Commission for being “too slow and inefficient” investigating Afghan Heroes.

  2. The 10 April 2014 Charity Commission response to the PAC report doesn’t mention Afghan Heroes. (https://dralexmay.wordpress.com/2014/04/10/afghan-heroes-not-mentioned-in-charity-commission-response-to-pac-report/)
  3. In its report, the PAC says that it had heard from a correspondent who said he’d complained in July 2013 about the charity to the Charity Commission.
  4. In The Independent newspaper today (14 April 2014), there is a report of a complaint made in 2011 about Afghan Heroes to the Commission: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/why-did-it-take-so-long-to-probe-soldiers-charity-9257642.html.
  5. On Afghan Heroes, it seems that the performance of the Charity Commission has been even worse than the PAC was aware of at the time of its report.
