New body proposed to oversee charities

RTHK 16-06-2011
The Law Reform Commission has proposed the creation of a new body to take charge of the registration and regulation of charities. Under the proposal, a new Charities Commission would have the power to look into cases of mismanagement and to remove certain trustees and senior officials.

But political parties would not be subject to the new regulation. The chairman of the commission’s Charities Sub-committee, Bernard Chan, said internet fund raising would also be excluded from the new law.
