The Charities Regulator John Farrelly is to carry out a statutory investigation into the Gay and Lesbian Network (Glen).

The charity has been at the centre of controversy in recent weeks over allegations relating to its financial management.

The scope of the investigation will include the administration, governance and financial management of the charity by the charity trustees.

It will examine if charitable assets have been used exclusively for charitable purposes and can be accounted for.

A report, commissioned by the Glen board, carried out by external consultant Jillian van Turnhout, found no evidence of "misappropriation" of funds.

She said yesterday she already acknowledged the authority of the regulator.
