The case for a full inquiry – A round-up of Spinwatch coverage of Kincora

Cross-posted from Spinwatch:

On Friday, the Belfast high court rejected calls for the Goddard Inquiry into child sexual abuse to look at abuse at Kincora Boys' Home in Belfast in the 1970s. Instead, the issue will remain with the Northern Ireland-focused Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry. Victims of abuse at the home have vowed to fight the decision, arguing that only the Goddard Inquiry has the powers to examine evidence linking Kincora to the intelligence services and to institutional abuse in Britain.

Over the past two years, Spinwatch has published a series of reports which point to the need for an inquiry with sufficient powers to follow up evidence of official collusion in abuse which is already in the public domain.
