The Chair of the Jersey Care Inquiry has made her closing statement.
Frances Oldham QC and her two panel colleagues will now retire to write a report based on all the evidence they have been given.
She thanked everyone who has given that evidence to the Inquiry and reiterated what the Panel will be focusing on in the report.
The Panel will not be making findings of fact in relation to individual allegations. That was not part of our remit. We will analyse the evidence as a whole to determine the culture of the relevant institutions and establish whether there were any patterns of abuse or systemic failings that can be identified.
Here is the full closing statement:
The lawyer representing victims of historical child abuse, has asked the Jersey Care Inquiry to remember the investigation is about people.
Jersey Care Inquiry has been told how the actions of the former Health Minister, Stuart Syvret, fueled rumours of a cover up of abuse.
A QC for Jersey Law Officers department has told the inquiry into historical child abuse that corruption claims are 'ill founded.'
