The Irish charity institute and the Britian charity bible institute have launched an investigation into whether the charities have been engaged in a conflict of interest over their funding.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, the Institute for Charities and Human Rights said it has received “no formal complaint” about the activities of its Irish counterpart.
But the BCHR said it had written to the two organisations in July and August asking for an investigation.
The Irish Charity Bible institute was founded by former director of the British charity bible charity foundation and now former chairman of the institute, John Kelly.
Mr Kelly said his organisation had been approached by a group of Irish charities who wanted to establish a body in Dublin that would take over the role of a British charity.
He said the groups’ enquiries had not been received.
Mr Trump also recently called for the creation of a commission to look into “the ethics of charity organisations”.
The Irish charity bible, meanwhile, has been involved in a number of controversies.
Its current director, Martin Nolan, has previously been charged with breach of a charitable trust in the UK and has been charged in Ireland for allegedly giving the British government money.
The British Charity bible, a charity founded in 1872, has an Irish branch.
The two charities have not yet responded to a request for comment.
