Abdul Khan – Trustee Statement

The BECON Board of Trustees make the following statement in respect of Abdul Khan:

Having been made aware of the recent conviction of Abdul Khan, the BECON Board of Trustees express their deep abhorrence of the significant crimes which have been committed by him.

The BECON Board of Trustees would like to stress that the appalling criminal acts perpetrated by Mr. Khan do not refer, nor are they in any way in relation to his role or activity in the BECON organisation.

Because BECON takes its responsibilities in safeguarding young and vulnerable people very seriously, Mr. Khan had been given extended leave from his professional duties for some time before the court hearing until the conclusion of the trial, and the BECON Board put in place clear steps and strong measures to ensure that the services and commitments of the organisation would not be impacted by these events. Mr. Khan will not be returning to the organisation.

BECON will continue to deliver its social mission into the future, providing valuable services and opportunities for those in need.
