Charities are free to continue funding an advocacy group that called an Islamic State murderer a “beautiful young man”, the High Court has confirmed.
 
Cage was thrust into the limelight when it emerged that among the terrorist suspects and jihadists it had supported was Mohammed Emwazi, who has been seen in Isis videos with the severed heads of western hostages.
 
Cage and the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust took the Charity Commission to a judicial review yesterday, complaining that the regulator had gone beyond its remit by telling the charity not to fund Cage. The commission claimed that there had been a misunderstanding.
