After the emergence of controversy regarding Prince Charles’ charity dealing with a Qatari sheikh, a former member of Parliament called for an investigation into the shady dealings on Sunday, claiming that the Prince had met with Arab monarchies over 95 times since 2011.

Prince Charles reportedly accepted at least three bags of cash containing a million euros each from billionaire and former Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber al-Thani between 2011 and 2015 for Charles’ Prince of Wales’s Charitable Fund, which handles the Prince’s advocacies, according to the Guardian.

Clarence House has previously released a statement denying any improper transaction between the Prince and the Shiek. Although the Charity Commission is planning on investigating the matter, most officials believe that Charles did not offer anything to bin Jassim in exchange for the money.

In spite of that, former MP Norman Baker has called upon the government to investigate the Prince regarding his acceptance of charitable donations, claiming that Charles had met over 95 times with members of Arab monarchies since 2011, the Daily Mail reported.

“Prince Charles has had 95 meetings with Arab monarchies since 2011, an extraordinary number. I think we need to know from [him] and Clarence House on how many occasions Prince Charles has received money in these meetings for his good causes,” he said.

Baker also insinuated that Charles may be involved in a different case from his charity where his former confidant Michael Fawcett reportedly offered a Saudi millionaire British citizenship and honors in exchange for a donation to the Prince’s charity fund.

“When I lodged a complaint with the Metropolitan Police last year in connection with the Saudi billionaire Mahfouz Marei Mubarak bin Mahfouz... Prince Charles was very clear in his response on that occasion,” he said.

“He did not get directly involved in dealings which solicited money for his foundation. But now he’s been caught red-handed doing just that – I’ve asked the Metropolitan Police this morning to take that into account in their ongoing criminal investigation.”

Charles and Clarence House have repeatedly denied any improper transaction regarding the charitable donations given to him.
