The NSPCC has said the report from Jersey's Care Inquiry needs to 'shed light on the full extent of abuse perpetrated against vulnerable children in Jersey’s care system.'
It comes after the Panel made their closing statement this afternoon.
The report is due to be published at the end of the year but the children's charity say it should 'see the light of day' as soon as possible as 'those affected have waited long enough'.
The abuse in Jersey’s care system affected an unprecedented number of people and each victim deserves to see clear change so the failings of the past cannot happen again.
People who have suffered abuse as a child often never reveal their ordeal. Ensuring no historical offence is considered too old for investigation is crucial if we’re to increase public confidence in reporting abuse and to show victims they can achieve justice.
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.'
