OSCR takes action against cancer trust

Campbell's Ozone Therapy Trust is threatened with legal action by OSCR.

An organisation passing itself off as a cancer charity has been threatened with legal action by Scotland’s charity regulator.

A business card belonging to Peter Campbell of Campbell’s Ozone Trust said it was a “registered cancer charity.”

However the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) said the organisation wasn’t registered on its database and issued a directive to Campbell to stop misrepresenting itself as a charity.

The organisation says it provides holistic support to people with cancer via ozone therapy which is regarded as beneficial in treating the illness.

A person who, without reasonable excuse, refuses or fails to comply with a direction under the 2005 Charity Act can be fined up to £5,000 and up to six months imprisonment.

Campbell now has the right to request OSCR to review its decision to issue a direction.
