The Charities Regulator has asked the High Court to dissolve the Inner City Helping Homeless (ICHH) charity.

Kieran Wallace of KPMG has been appointed as provisional liquidator by the court. A hearing of a winding-up petition is set for November 1st.

The Charities Regulator said that the decision to present the petition “has not been taken lightly.”

“The responsibility for the administration and management of a charity at all times rests with its trustees,” it said.

“In circumstances such as those arising in the case of ICHH, this includes responsibility for proposing and implementing an effective and timely resolution to the crisis facing the charity.

“It is a decision of last resort in circumstances where the charity’s trustees have ultimately been unable to address the pressing need for stability and certainty for ICHH staff, volunteers and service users,” the regulator added.

It comes after the charity’s founder and former chief executive, Dublin City Councillor Anthony Flynn, was accused of sexual assault by some of the men he had secured accommodation for.

One reported incident involved a 21-year-old male who was allegedly brought to the independent politician’s home by taxi in the middle of the night.

It is believed the charity’s taxi account was used for the journey.

Flynn stepped back from ICHH in August and died ten days later, while the complaints were being investigated by gardaí.

The Charities Regulator said that it first received a formal concern over ICHH in July this year, which was immediately referred to An Garda Síochána, and the ICHH board was also contacted on July 30th.
