Welcome to the week.
With the recent revelation that the Statutory Inquiry Into Child Sexual Abuse may take 8 years to complete, many have started to question the Inquiry’s intentions as a result. Some victims and survivors have responded to the news with anger, accusing the Inquiry of foul play, that justice delayed is justice denied. Others have defended the Inquiry, taking the view that the time line is an estimate and is an indication of the Inquiry’s earnest desire to hear all victims of abuse who wish to come forward.
Our question to you then, is just this: do you think an extended Inquiry, regardless of the reasons behind an extended investigation, can offer survivors the redress they seek?
