Care Inquiry reject claims evidence will be destroyed

The panel investigating into historical child abuse in Jersey have refuted claims that evidence will be destroyed once it publishes it's report.

The Independent Jersey Care Inquiry have stated that the arrangements for preserving the data are underway.

The panel was due to publish its conclusions by the end of March.

However, there was a delay after recommendations were made to improve Jersey's childcare system.

The Inquiry wishes to reaffirm that the evidence it has received will not be destroyed. Arrangements for securing and preserving Inquiry data are under active consideration.
