Kenya Human Rights Commission de-registered

The Commission is said to have operated illegal accounts and refused to pay millions in taxes.

The NGO Coordination Board on Monday de-registered the Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC).

The board in a letter signed by the Executive Directir Fazul Mahamed said that the commission had operated four illegal bank accounts in contravention of section 12 (4) of the NGO Coordinations Act No.19 of 1990.

The NGO Board also listed that KHRC had failed, declined or refused to pay statutory taxes to the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA ) amounting to Sh100 million as provided under the schedule 10 of the Income Tax Act.

"Your organisation has hired expatriates without valid work permits contrary to the provisions of the Kenya Citizenship and Immigration Act 2011, the NGO Coordinations Act No.19 of 1990 and the terms and conditions attached to your certificate of registration," the letter also read in part.

The Board also said that KHRC's financial statements failed to give a true and fair view of their final position and it could not ascertain the Sh1.2 billion it received could fully be accounted for.

The Board further advised the Central Bank of Kenya to preserve all of the KHRC funds and initiate the process of recovering the Sh100 million accrued by the commission in taxes.
