Mortenson Investigation Concludes

Greg Mortenson, the author of Three Cups of Tea, will step down from his position as executive director of the charity he founded, the Central Asia Institute, and will repay $1 million, as a result of a  yearlong investigation by the Montana attorney general. The Associated Press reports that the attorney general found ”Mortenson had little aptitude for record keeping or personnel management.” He will continue to work for the organization and to speak on its behalf.

Questions about Mortenson’s running of the charity were first raised by CBS 60 Minutes and author Jon Krakauer.
