The Gay and Lesbian Equality Network (Glen) has been directed to provide specific financial information by the Charities Regulator.

According to RTE News, the direction - which includes financial reports, details of staff credit cards and the report of an independent auditor - dates back three years to 2014.

Details of all credit cards used by board members, staff and volunteers and any expenditure on them for 2014, 2015 and 2016 - along with details of authorisations for the cards - has reported been requested.

It is understood that the HSE is currently in communication with Glen regarding funding for 2017.

The charity, according to RTE, said in a statement it made a voluntary disclosure to the Regulator following a review of its corporate governance procedures.

It said that it is fully cooperating with the Regulator and it had also engaged an auditor to examine issues.

Glen reportedly has to comply with the Regulator's direction by the end of this month.
