Charity Commission and terrorism suspect campaigners Cage in high court
The right to fund unpopular causes is at the heart of a key case heard in the high court on Wednesday, in a legal battle that pits controversial campaigners Cage against the charity regulator.
Lawyers for the high-profile lobby group Cage, which campaigns on behalf of people accused of terrorism, will claim that the Charity Commission exceeded its remit in seeking – and getting – assurances from Cage's charity backers that they would not continue to fund its work.
Cage is arguing the commission overstepped its powers by asking two charities – the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust (JRCT) and the Roddick Foundation – to pledge never to give Cage money again.
