Charity Tribunal's second case needs more time

Appeal by Tamil charity's former trustee beset by delays

The Charity Tribunal's second case will need a further hearing in August after the original hearing ran out of time.

Seven days were reserved for the case, in which Nagendram Seevaratnam appealed against his removal by the Charity Commission as a trustee of Sivayogam, a Hindu charity that runs a temple serving Tamils in south London.

But the barristers agreed on the need for a further hearing when time ran out before they could give their closing submissions.

The case was originally lodged in May 2008, but has been delayed due to Seevaratnam's difficulties in finding affordable legal representation.
