IICSA woes

Postby dls » Thu Sep 29, 2016 7:38 pm

What is happening to this inquiry is a disaster.

The loss of two senior legal counsel in addition to the earlier losses of chairs really does need explanation.

The admitted (save by those in charge) problem, appeared to have been the impossibly ambitious scope of the inquiry.

My completely unsubstantiated suspicion is that there is also a difficulty with the central position given to the victims. Hands up anyone who thinks that this inquiry could be allowed to come to any conclusion sufficiently unanticipated to justify the cost.

It s there to find that virtually every complaint is true. It almost starts with that conclusion.

Why bother? Why not 'Go sraight to jail, do not pass go do not collect £200(m).

Because many of those accused hold (or held) high offices.

And therein lies the rub.

We already have a system in place for deciding whether people are guilty of crimes. We use a similar system to determine whether they are liable under the civil law. The IICSA's remit is vast an nebulous, and effectively impossible to fulfill. The (alleged) victims have been sold a solution which cannot deliver what they want. Further, dls is spot on that putting those victims so centrally, and starting with the assumption that their accusations are true, has fatally weakened the Inquiry's ability to take a dispassionate and impartial view.

Actually, it wasn't particularly informative. Didn't live up to its own hype. Inquiry a shambles; only speculation as to why the barristers resigned (they are being most unfair and not saying).
