Interpal Accused

INTERPAL (the Palestinian Relief & Development Fund), IBB and Lloyds TSB:

AN aid organisation which is being investigated by the Charity Commission said Lloyds TSB has threatened to stop processing its transactions from next month.

Interpal’s accounts are with the Islamic Bank of Britain (IBB) but the charity said IBB relies on Lloyds TSB as its clearing bank.

Ibrahim Hewitt, chairman of the board of trustees at Interpal, said Lloyds had served a notice on IBB to cease dealing with the charity which will come into effect on December 8.

Claims Interpal :

This is not only an attack on Interpal, a leading British charity, but on all other Muslim charities, all charities working in politically-sensitive regions, all customers of IBB and the Palestinian people, 80% of whom are completely dependent on international aid for survival.
