The British Government does not fund extremists or any organisation with links to extremists in Syria. The Minister of State for the Middle East and North Africa wrote to all members of both Houses on 10 January about the outcome of the investigations that we conducted into Adam Smith International (ASI) following allegations by the BBC's Panorama that funding we had provided to ASI may have been diverted. In that letter the Minister confirmed that both internal and third party investigations had concluded. These found no evidence that either Her Majesty's Government or ASI had acted inappropriately. The investigations concluded that the allegations were either (i) untrue, (ii) misleading or (iii) were dealt with appropriately by the project and donors at the time through the robust risk management and monitoring procedures in place.
