 Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry Hearings: Commencement of Phase 4

On 4 June the Inquiry will begin hearing evidence relating to Phase 4 of its investigations into residential child care establishments run by Male Religious Orders.

This part of Phase 4 hearings will begin with a case study about residential child care establishments run by the Congregation of Christian Brothers, with a particular focus on St Ninian’s Falkland, Fife

Hearings will be held at the Inquiry’s hearing venue, situated on the 3rd floor of Rosebery House, 9 Haymarket Terrace, Edinburgh EH12 5EZ.  This case study is expected to conclude in July

At this stage, applications may be made for leave to appear for the Congregation of Christian Brothers case study. Anyone wishing to apply should do so as soon as possible and, in any event, no later than noon on Tuesday 2 April

What’s involved in having “leave to appear” is explained here on the Inquiry’s website. www.childabuseinquiry.scot. There are also application forms on the website.

Members of the public do not need “leave to appear” to watch hearings from the public areas in the Inquiry venue. They are welcome to do so at any time.
