Hello Bajan-ga, and thank you for your question.
Due to copyright restrictions, I cannot reproduce full newspaper
articles here. However, I can certainly point you to quite a few
newspaper stories (with summaries, when available) that seem to meet
your needs. A good librarian should be able to get you full copies of
any or all of these.
If there is a particular article you need more information about, just
let me know through a Request for Clarification.

There are two relatively easy ways to get access to the full articles:
The first, as I mentioned in my original answer, is to ask a local
library to get the copies for you. While this may be a bit
time-consuming, it is the cheapest option.
The second is to get the articles on-line from LexisNexis -- easy to
do, but there is a charge for article access. The instructions for
using this service are as follows:

card info to establish an account]
[Also note, that on the same page where you can selecte "Pay As You
Go" there is also an option to sign up for a daily or weekly account
for news retrieval. Depending on how many articles you will be
getting, this may be a more economic option for you. For 9 articles,
though, you're probably better off with the "Pay As You Go" option]
Fill in the form to establish an account.
After your account is established, select "News" to get to the search
Select "General News"
In the "Subject" box, type:
Elly Jansen and Charity Commission
In the "Source" box, select "News -- All Years"
The "Dates" box should read "All available dates".
LexisNexis will return a number of newspaper articles containing your
search terms, including the nine that I identified in my answer.
Click the check box for any article that you want to see in full.
Click "Next Page" to see additional articles.
When you've selected all the articles of interest, click "order Tagged

U.S., the charge is $3 per article.
If you run into any problems using LexisNexis, or need any additional
information, just let me know through a follow-up Clarification
Request, and I'll be happy to be of service.
