The Charities Regulator’s statutory investigation into the affairs of Navan Mental Health Association is still paused while An Garda Síochána undertake a criminal investigation.
The Regulator remains in contact with the charity regarding the ongoing governance of the organisation.
18 May 2022
In March 2022, the Charities Regulator appointed inspectors pursuant to section 64 of the Charities Act 2009 to investigate the affairs of Navan Mental Health Housing Association Limited (“the Charity”), 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 the Charity and have requested that the Regulator’s statutory investigation be paused. As a result, the Regulator’s statutory investigation into the affairs of the Charity 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.
