"Jersey Child Abuse Inquiry - No Stone Should Be Left Unturned!"
Historic abuse Inquiry not 'robust'
Victims of historic abuse in Jersey are raising concerns that the remit of the proposed Committee of Inquiry isn't robust enough.
The Jersey Careleavers' Association, along with a group of current and former backbench politicians, have written to the Chief Minister asking why certain aspects have been left out of the Council of Ministers' (CoM) proposition.
The CoM have laid out the Terms of Reference for the Committee of Inquiry, which they are asking the States to approve. The debate was due to take place on Tuesday 15th, but has been postponed until 19th February.
Recommendations for the Inquiry's remit were originally put forward by Verita. But the CoM have ommitted what abuse victims say are important points, such as addressing concerns relating to the police investigation and exploring political handling of the investigation.
The group lobbying the Chief Minister say the Committee of Inquiry should be comprehensive, open and transparent.
