Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry Hearings: Continuation of Phase 4

 

In early July the Inquiry will resume hearing evidence relating to Phase 4 of its investigations into residential child care establishments run by Male Religious Orders.

There are three separate case studies in this phase of evidence. The second case study will examine residential child care establishments run by the Benedictines with a particular focus on Carlekemp Priory School, North Berwick, and Fort Augustus Abbey School.

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 late July.

At this stage, applications may be made for leave to appear for this case study. Anyone wishing to apply should do so as soon as possible and, in any event, no later than noon on 18 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.
