Probe into ‘Three Cups’ Charity Finished
HELENA, Mont. (AP) — The Montana attorney general’s office has completed its investigation into the charity co-founded by “Three Cups of Tea” author Greg Mortenson and will announce its findings on Thursday.
The yearlong investigation began after “60 Minutes” and author Jon Krakauer published reports that alleged Greg Mortenson fabricated parts of his best-selling book and personally benefited from the Central Asia Institute.
The probe is investigating CAI’s finances and operations and does not address the book’s contents.
The findings are expected to address allegations of mismanagement of assets by Mortenson and the Bozeman-based charity.
