Islamic school refuses to repay millions to Department of Education
by Louise Hall and Eryk Bagshaw
The Malek Fahd Islamic School has accused the state government of breaching racial discrimination laws in ordering it to repay $8.5 million in taxpayer funding.
The school, which educates about 2500 Muslim students in Sydney's south-west, is refusing to pay back the financial assistance it received between 2010 and 2011, three years after the NSW Minister for Education, Adrian Piccoli, declared that it had been unlawfully operating for profit.
In court documents, Malek Fahd said legislation introduced into NSW in October 2014 is contrary to the federal Racial Discrimination Act.
