Commission clears Islamic society of links with terrorists

The Charity Commission has cleared the Society of the Revival of Islamic Heritage of having any links with terrorist groups following a 10-month investigation.

The Commission opened an investigation into the Islamic charity in January after the US froze the assets of the Revival of Islamic Heritage Society (RHIS), a similarly named organisation in the US with offices in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The US government alleged links between the Pakistan office and Osama Bin Laden.

Following the inquiry, the commission found that while some of the UK charity trustees were members of the RHIS in Pakistan, there was no evidence linking the charity to the individuals named by the US Treasury Department.
