Charity Commission for England and Wales v Framjee and others

Charity – Charitable trust. Concerns were raised about the administration of a charitable trust. In August 2011, the Charity Commission for England and Wales (the Commission) commenced an inquiry into the trust. On the 6 June 2013, the first defendant was appointed as an interim manager. The Commission applied to the Chancery Division for directions. The Chancery Division held that, among other things, donations made to the trust were impressed with a trust of a general nature, and that the most appropriate way of distributing the trust fund would be a single pari passu distribution of the entire fund.
