Statutory investigation into the affairs of Bóthar

In early October 2020, the Charities Regulator appointed inspectors pursuant to section 64 of the Charities Act 2009 to investigate the affairs of Bóthar Company Limited by Guarantee (the charity known as ‘Bóthar’ - Registered Charity Number 20026592), having received concerns in relation to the charity.

The Charities Regulator has been advised by An Garda Síochána that a criminal investigation is underway into activities at Bóthar and have requested that the Regulator’s statutory investigation be paused. As a result, the Regulator’s statutory investigation into the affairs of Bóthar is being temporarily paused until such time as the criminal investigation is complete, at which time the Regulator’s investigation will resume.

The Charities Regulator will not be making any further comment on the matter while investigations are ongoing.
