Priest charged with fraud

Canon Ian Finn from Suffolk is accused of dishonestly gaining £13,000 from a church.

The 55 year old has been charged with fraud by abuse of position whilst at St Mary The Virgin Church in Haverhill town centre between 2007 and 2014.

He's been suspended by the Church of England pending the outcome of the court case.

John Howard, spokesman for the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich, said: "This matter is with Suffolk Constabulary and the courts and it is therefore inappropriate to comment at this stage."

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
