Kincora investigation must be fully independent - Hazzard

2 June, 2015 - by Chris Hazzard

Sinn Féin MLA Chris Hazzard has said the investigation into the abuse of children at Kincora Boys home must be fully independent. 

Mr Hazzard said; 

"There is mounting evidence in the public domain that elements of the British security services, politicians and senior officials were aware of the appalling abuse, which was carried out at Kincora. 

"The current Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry does not have the powers to compel members of the British intelligence services to give evidence to any inquiry it may hold into into Kincora. 

"The only way to get at the truth of what happened at Kincora is through an independent investigation with full judicial powers to compel witnesses. 

"The British establishment simply cannot be trusted to investigate itself."
