Privacy and Confidentiality

The following principles guided the Inquiry’s approach to protecting the privacy of witnesses:

The fair and respectful treatment of witnesses is a priority for the Inquiry.  All witnesses will be treated with dignity and respect.  The Inquiry's rules, known as its protocols, also set out how witnesses can apply for anonymity or apply to give their evidence in private.  Where such applications are successful, the utmost care will be taken to protect witnesses' privacy and confidentiality and special arrangements can, and will, be made by the Inquiry.

Obligations will be placed on the media and the public to adhere to the Inquiry's arrangements for protecting witnesses, and sanctions will be imposed should any breaches occur.
