More former residents of Jersey care homes have come forward in recent weeks after seeing the ongoing work of the Independent Jersey Care Inquiry. They want to give oral evidence in this first phase of the Inquiry.
In order to prepare for these witnesses, the Inquiry will not be sitting next week (2-6 February, 2015).
Meanwhile, the legal team is also continuing to prepare for the next phase of evidence from those who worked with or were in contact with childcare and also those accused of abuse.
The Inquiry expects to announce the start date for the next phase of hearings within two weeks.
