Terrorism: Britain’s top Palestinian charity again cleared of links to terror organisations

Britain’s top Palestinian charity has been cleared for the third time of any alleged links with terrorist organisations.

In a 52-page report Friday, the Charity Commission dismissed allegations made over two-and-a-half years ago by the BBC's Panorama documentary series claiming that Interpal funded partner organisation that promoted terrorist ideology.

“The inquiry found that given the seriousness of the allegations being made, the material did not reach the standard of proof required under UK civil law,” the commission said.

It concluded there was “not enough evidence to support the allegations.”

Interpal responded to the findings saying that it had been “vindicated” for the third time in the past 13 years.

Previous inquiries in 1996 and 2003 also found insufficient evidence to support allegations
