“Sheik ‘committed no offence,'” from AAP, with thanks to Paying Attention:
It is unlikely controversial mufti Sheik Taj Aldin Alhilali committed an offence if he gave charity money donated by Sydney Muslims to Hezbollah, Australian Federal Police Commissioner Mick Keelty says.
The claims are being investigated by the Australian Federal Police as a possible breach of Australia’s anti-terrorism laws.
But Mr Keelty today said if proved to be correct it was more likely to be an issue of governance than an offence.
“We are obviously looking at the circumstances surrounding the donations, but I would caution against any speculation about any offence being committed here,” Mr Keelty said.
“I suspect that it’s more an issue of governance and the governance arrangements about the money.
“I wouldn’t certainly be speculating that there would be any intension for us to charge or take action against Mr Alhilali,” he said.
Why, of course not!
