IICSA Benedictine Hearings started today

One of the investigations being carried out by the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) concerns abuse in the Roman Catholic Church.

And within the Roman Catholic investigation, one of the case studies concerns abuse within the monasteries and schools of the English Benedictine Congregation, including Ealing, Ampleforth, Downside and Worth.

The hearings into the EBC started today with opening submissions from interested parties. The current set of hearings is concentrating on Downside and Ampleforth. Ealing will be heard about at a later hearing.

You should read Richard Scorer's opening submission.
