Awema race charity in 'substantial loss to public purse'
The winding up of a race equality charity cost the Welsh government hundreds of thousands of pounds, its top civil servant has said.
Swansea-based Awema had its public funding stopped and closed in February 2012 following claims of financial mismanagement.
Chief executive Naz Malik was later charged with fraud but cleared after a trial in 2014.
Sir Derek Jones told the assembly's public accounts committee - chaired by Darren Millar - that most of the charity's £300,000 debt to the Welsh government had been written off.
