Who can distribute Zakat?

Can a non-Muslim distribute Zakat funds?

If this means a Muslim gives their Zakat to a non-Muslim to distribute on their behalf, then this would only be permissible if the actual Zakat payer is 100% sure and confident that the intermediary will indeed distribute funds in an honest manner to an eligible recipient.

If this happens, then Zakat will have been discharged although this is not something to be encouraged on a wider scale.
