The free service is one of the leading charities giving legal advice and representation to immigrants and asylum seekers in England and Scotland. From April 2009 until March 2010, the charity handled more than 24,000 cases, 14,462 of which were publicly funded immigration cases. In a statement, the ISA said: "The government's reforms include the removal of immigration from the scope of legal aid, and a 10% cut in legal aid fees for refugees seeking asylum within the UK. Immigration accounts for around 60% of IAS's income.
So publicly funded cases were 60% of its income. And the other 40% (which was legal aid) also came from the tax payers purse. So it was a charity that got the overwhelming majority of its income from the government for handling asylum requests. To my mind, that doesn't make it a charity - that makes it a business.
They had also over claimed for legal aid...
The IAS also failed to reach an agreement with the Legal Services Commission (LSC), which runs the legal aid scheme in England and Wales, over the repayment of money which the charity had claimed in error, partly, in IAS's view, due to the LSC's "complex funding rules in place".
And the financial management of the company was (to put it politely) dubious.
A spokesman said: "During recent stewardship activities LSC raised concerns around financial management and claims irregularities which prompted IAS trustees' to conclude that the organisation was no longer financially viable.
