AFIC's new 'committee' previously part of organisation mismanagement
by Rachel Olding
A major Islamic organisation thrown into turmoil by an internal coup has been stacked with new executives that include two sacked school leaders and a halal certifier suing anti-Islam campaigner Kirralie Smith.
Fairfax Media reported on Monday that a group of former executive members of the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils (AFIC), who either stepped down or were banned last year, entered the organisation's Zetland headquarters late at night last week with a locksmith.
AFIC administers millions of dollars worth of halal certification, sits on $65 million worth of assets and runs six Islamic schools.
