Goodness… what are they thinking?!
Howard, Gordon and Alan on air talking about how the CC have cleared them of all wrongdoing! They haven’t!!!
They published this statement on their website.
“After a thorough investigation of Revelation Foundation over nine months the Charity Commission has identified no loss or misappropriation of charitable funds by the trustees. The day to day operations of Revelation Foundation have continued throughout, without interference from the Charity Commission and no criticism has been made of programme content or production. The Charity Commission has noted the legal and accounting complexities of Revelation Foundation’s activities in the UK and Spain and has appointed an accountant to act as an interim manager to work with the trustees to resolve issues relating to the legal and accounting procedures of Revelation Foundation and its associated Spanish companies. The trustees have nothing to hide and welcome this appointment and will draw upon the expertise of the accountant and his team to ensure the public have full assurance as to the work of the trust.”
They have seriously jumped the gun on this one. They also went on air talking in depth about the letter they had from the CC. It was pretty clear that the CC have not cleared them, as they have a) not said they have, this is clear from the show, although they have spun it well and b) the CC have appointed an interim manager.
They even acknowledged in the show that the CC haven’t actually said they have cleared them. They also acknowledge that just because the CC haven’t commented on the charities fundraising tactics etc, doesn’t mean that they have been given a clean bill of health. They just glossed over that though.
I’ve written this as a response to their questionable claims regarding being cleared.
I watched last nights show on the internet. I must admit you are good at the spin!
Do you not realise that the appointment of a manager is a serious thing?
You have in no way been cleared of wrongdoing! The CC would have actually said so if this were the case. Just because they haven’t made reference to the things they are investigating doesn’t mean you are cleared!!!
The CC don’t send an interim manager with no cause. They only do so for one of two reasons…
- There is or has been misconduct or mismanagement in the administration of the charity; or
- It is necessary or desirable to act to protect the charity’s property.
This shows the findings are not necessarily in your favour!!!
How could the CC clear you of wrongdoing when you have lied to viewers for years regarding 21st Century TV Ltd. People have donated based on lies and deception. The CC cannot sanction that and will at least advise that steps need to be taken to make things clear for viewers to know exactly what happens with 21st Century TV. I believe you have a donor currently trying to get his donations back because he donated based on untruths.
The other thing that you clearly don’t seem to grasp is that the appointment of an interim manager generally goes alongside the investigation. This doesn’t necessarily mean the CC have concluded anything, just that they feel further steps are required.
The way you talk of how it’s not worth going after me… you almost sound like you believe it!
You have threatened me with a solicitor before, why not now??? You are well known for your use of the courts.
Is it perhaps because you know that you lied about me?
Or maybe because you know what you have been up to and more importantly, I do too!
Howard, just come clean! It’s not over and there is no way that I’m going to be silenced by your false claims.
Perhaps I should go to the secular press? They would have a field day.
I wanted us to do this “in-house”, but you seem determined to spit on the truth.
What am I to do with you Howard? All I wanted was dialogue when I sent my original correspondence to the trustees. I was even willing to help you come clean in a way that you could even have saved face.
I reached out to you all at RTV, but you saw me as a threat instead of a friend.
Sadly, you’ve now made me and others a threat and we are not going away.
