Inquiry into abuse in care: Chair resigns, concerns raised, first public hearing set

August 16, 2019 at 10:36 AM

From the NZFVC

The Royal Commission has announced Chair of the Abuse in Care Inquiry, Sir Anand Satyanand has resigned, effective in November 2019.

Sir Anand said:

"it has been a privilege to Chair the Abuse in Care Inquiry during its setup phase. When the Terms of Reference were announced by the Government in November 2018, the scope of the Inquiry was widened to include faith-based institutions and the scale of the work increased markedly. Because of that and the fact that the ‘set-up’ and development phase of the Inquiry is nearly complete, I have opted to step aside for a new Chair who can lead the Inquiry through to the completion of this important process."
