For some time now we have been questioning what has been happening with charities, we appear to have more than ever and there are some charities which are nothing but a name.
We are not the first to question this articles can be found at
It appears that we are not alone this article has just been received from the UK
We have pointed out to the select committee that there are charities which appear to have no members e.g. The Roundtable On Violence Against Women Trust. This trust is not registered any where and is a trading name for person and persons unknown.
What we do know is that the address to which it is registered is that of Alana Bowman an active labour party member.
It appears that all you need is a credible sounding name, a cause which is funded and from there we have very little transparency.
Is New Zealand’s financial crises caused by funding non existent entities which provide back door support to political parties?
We will forward an Official information act request to see what funding if any this organisation has received. And will keep you posted.
