IICSA published report on accountability and reparations

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse has today published a detailed report concerning the extent to which the systems of civil justice, criminal compensation and support services provide effective accountability and reparations to victims and survivors of child sexual abuse.  A copy of the report can be found here.  The report makes a number of recommendations to national bodies in relation to these issues, some of which concern the work of the police service.

Jason Beer QC and Jonathan Dixey acted for the Metropolitan Police Service and Devon & Cornwall Police; Alan Payne QC acted for Durham Constabulary.
