MPs, Spies And Clergy Focus Of Abuse Inquiry


The 12 areas to be examined by the Child Sexual Abuse inquiry.

The Anglican and Catholic churches and “certain people of public prominence associated with Westminster” will be investigated by the independent abuse inquiry, it has been announced.

Justice Lowell Goddard, who is leading the investigation, also said councils in Lambeth, Nottinghamshire and Rochdale will be examined.

She set out 12 different areas which will come under scrutiny.

Justice Goddard said: “The investigation will focus on high-profile allegations of child sexual abuse involving current or former members of parliament, senior civil servants, government advisers and members of intelligence and security agencies.

“It will consider allegations of cover up and conspiracy and review the adequacy of law enforcement responses to these allegations.”

    That is a very large, broad & varied remit for one judge. Is there a time scale?
    Anyone of those should deserve its own enquiry, not lump 12 together.
    Strikes me a lot of that will get buried deliberately.
    Interesting to see they are all definitive statements apart from the last which mentions ‘allegations’.

    And the Social Services took away children from their parents for their own safety and they then end up in the “care” of this lot of low lifes…..frying pan into fire me thinks.

    Will this really be fully investigated and people held to account for their abuse, this is why Saville got away with it for so long, powerful friends in high places and all fellow perverts too!
