Regular readers will have read Part I.
Wille, when tasked by the media about the alleged missing money , said “There is no money missing. Every penny we get goes towards victims. There were paperwork errors, nothing more than that”
You might suppose that Willie learned a lesson and that paperwork would be to the forefront of what he is pleased to call his mind.
Willie is involved in two victims’ groups, which are non profit making, allegedly.
The first in time was FAIR. It is no longer possible to access its website, which has been suspended. FAIR was registered with HMRC as a charity. However, new laws have been applicable to FAIR for several years now. It is required to register with the Charity Commission and , in due course , to provide statements of financial dealings. It was notified of this obligation over a year ago but to date FAIR has provided no accounts. So FAIR’s financial dealings are a mystery.
The other organisation which Willie is intimately involved with is the Family Research and Policy Unit. It too is non profit making and is therefore a charity. There is no record of this organisation with the Charity Commission at all. So you, the tax payer cannot find out its financial affairs through the Commissioner. In fact there is no trace of this organisation , except premises in Markethill. No telephone number, no email address and no website.
Worse, this second organisation receives government funding. I asked the Victims and Survivors Service for details of any conditions applied by it and any accounts held by them.
Their reply was that they did require FRPU to be registered as a charity and they had no accounts for it.This despite making a grant of over £50,000 to it. So you , the public, who fund this organisation can know nothing about it.
So the two vehicles used by Willie to push his “victims'” agenda are not transparent.
The big question is, how does Willie pay his way? How does he travel back and forward to London so frequently? What does he do with any public money he gets? Does he have access to any other money? Is he in receipt of benefits? Do individuals or groups , make charitable contributions? To whom does he owe money?
Can he tell us which victims he has helped? Has he any vouching documentation? How many cookers did he buy? Were they new or second hand?
The real issue here is that Frazer promotes himself as a non-sectarian victims’ campaigner. It’s hard to see how he qualifies on either score.
Willie continues to say it’s not about the money, perhaps that’s a message to you and me that he is going to keep it a secret.
Let’s wait and see.
