The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse is investigating how organisations such as the Catholic Church responded to victims and allegations of abuse over the past decades.
From 10 March 2014 the Royal Commission will focus on Case Study 8, the response of the Catholic Church in the John Ellis case.
After the John Ellis case the Royal Commission moves to Adelaide from 17th March and will begin looking into Case Study 9, the responses by the Catholic Archdiocese of Adelaide, and the South Australian Police, into allegations of child sexual abuse at St Ann’s Special School.
During the hearings the Truth Justice and Healing Council will respond to various issues highlighted by evidence from the hearing rooms.
