The British government has officially asked the UK Charity Commission for a detailed report on the Muslim Brotherhood’s possible charitable work in the United Kingdom as well as overseas.
Back on April 1st, British Prime Minister David Cameron commissioned an investigation of the Brotherhood’s philosophy, activities and impact on British interests at home and abroad.
The investigation, which will also review the British government’s overall policy towards the Muslim Brotherhood, is being led by Sir John Jenkins, Britain’s ambassador to Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia has recently designated the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group.
The Charity Commission’s possible evidence could be a key component of the investigation as the Muslim Brotherhood has been accused by Egyptian media and authorities of using a number of Islamic charities to support Jihadist terrorism.
