Terms of reference for inquiry into abuse in care finalised; panelists appointed

November 23, 2018 at 11:56 AM

From the NZFVC

The Government has released the final terms of reference for the Royal Commission into abuse in care. Key changes include expanding the inquiry to include abuse in the care of faith-based institutions, and discretion to hear about abuse outside the time period of 1950-1999.

The inquiry is now called the Royal Commission into Historical Abuse in State Care and in the Care of Faith-Based Institutions.

In addition, four members have been added to the inquiry panel along with the chair Rt Hon Sir Anand Satyanand. They are: Ali’imuamua Sandra Alofivae, MNZM; Dr Andrew Erueti; Paul Gibson; and Judge Coral Shaw. The inquiry will also establish an advisory group or groups of survivors of abuse in care.

The changes to the Terms of Reference are in response to more than 400 submissions on the draft terms of reference. The final Terms of Reference set out the purpose and scope, definitions, principles and methods, findings and recommendations, and reporting and conclusion of work.
