An Islamic development charity has been cleared following allegations of terrorist links.
The International Development Foundation (IDF) was named in the Montebourg report to the French parliament investigating money laundering and business links to terrorism. The report mentioned the IDF's relationship with a third party connected to Osama Bin Laden.
Following a seven-month inquiry, the Charity Commission stated that it has found no evidence to support the claim, and determined that all funds were used for charitable purposes.
The IDF's trustees have agreed to improve the administration of the charity after the Commission reprimanded the organisation for poor financial record keeping.
The IDF raises money for charitable work in the Middle East and has an annual income of just over £250,000 a year.
