During Phase 2 the Inquiry continued to examine evidence it had ingathered, researched and analysed relating to residential child care establishments run by Catholic Orders. This phase resumed with a case study about residential child care establishments run by the Sisters of Nazareth. Hearings continued on the 22nd May 2018 and ended on the 3rd July 2018
Certain witnesses, who had been served with formal statutory notices which required them to provide written statements to the Inquiry for use in the Sisters of Nazareth case study , had applied to have the notices revoked. Lady Smith arranged a hearing on the 4th April at 10am at which time the witnesses’ solicitor spoke in support of these applications.
