According to a statement by Bellamy's solicitor, the new legal team will have to investigate any irregularities in the management of the academy’s financial affairs.'
Reports in United Kingdom stated that the Charity Commission confirmed to Sportsmail that concerns had been raised about the Foundation but that a formal investigation was not yet opened.
A statement read: 'I can confirm that concerns have been raised with us about The Craig Bellamy Foundation and the closure of its academy in Sierra Leone.
'We are assessing these concerns to determine what, if any, role there might be for the Commission. As part of our engagement, we are reminding trustees of their duty to file their outstanding financial accounts.
'Trustees must account to the public and donors for their income and expenditure, and the failure to do so may give rise to concerns about the governance and administration of a charity.'
The former Welsh international started the CBF after his visit to a friend in Freetown in 2007 and it was reported that the Ex-Liverpool striker splashed a total of £1.4million of his persona finance into the project. While the Sierra Leonean government then donated 15 acres of land for the construction of training facilities and accommodation, as well as classrooms.
