The Independent: Theresa May still refuses to publish report on Saudi Arabia funding of UK extremists
2017-07-09 00:09:20

Theresa May has been accused of burying a report about Saudi Arabian funding of Islamist extremism in the UK for fear it may damage relations with their ally. 

The report, which was originally commissioned by David Cameron in January last year, was due to be completed by last Easter and is believed to have been in Ms May’s possession for at least six months.

The study, which began while Ms May was still Home Secretary, was designed to examine the origins and scale of funding of terror groups in the UK with an additional remit to follow international funding streams.

It is believed the report was commissioned as part of a deal struck with the Liberal Democrats to gain their support for British airstrikes against Syria in December

In a response to a parliamentary question asked by Green MP Caroline Lucas, Ms May said: “The review into the funding of Islamist extremism has improved the Government’s understanding of the nature, scale and sources of funding for Islamist extremism in the UK.

“Ministers are considering advice on what is able to be published and will report to Parliament with an update in due course.”

Last month, a spokesman for the Home Office admitted to The Guardian that the report may never be published as its contents were “very sensitive”.
