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 focused on Case Study 8, the response of the Catholic Church in the John Ellis case.
The Royal Commission concluded in Adelaide on 24th March after 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.
