BREAKING: New Panel For The Nation’s Child Abuse Inquiry – Or Is It?

Researching Reform

This just in: the nation’s child abuse inquiry has finally revealed its new panel – and only one of the panelists, Malcolm Evans, is a new recruit. We are assuming that the Malcolm Evans in question is the Bristol University professor who is dean of the social sciences department there. Malcolm Evans OBE is an English legal scholar and has a strong background in human rights.

The remaining members, Ivor Frank, Dru Sharpling (both barristers), inquiry expert Professor Alexis Jay, and legal adviser and leading human rights lawyer, Ben Emmerson QC, are all original inquiry members. The current line up confirms our prediction that the new inquiry would be dominated by legal minds. Quite why it took so long to unveil a largely old inquiry panel is not known but survivors consulted on the new panel appear to be pleased with the result. And that’s all that matters.
