HELENA, Mont. (AP) -- The interim director of Greg Mortenson's charity says the "Three Cups of Tea" author will continue to be a paid employee of the Central Asia Institute.
Anne Beyersdorfer tells The Associated Press that Mortenson is the heart and soul of the organization and he will keep promoting CAI and build relationships overseas.
But she says Mortenson will no longer be on the charity's board of directors.
An investigation by the Montana Attorney General's office released Thursday concludes Mortenson mismanaged the nonprofit organization and personally benefited from it.
Beyersdorfer says the organization disagrees with some of the probe's conclusions, such as that Mortenson charged personal items on CAI credit cards.
CAI and Mortenson signed a settlement agreement that calls for Mortenson to repay $1 million and for the charity to reorganize.
