UK Government Deletes Essential Evidence for Pedophile Rings
London, UK – Testimonies vital to an independent inquiry into why pedophile rings appear to be exempt from capture, have been permanently deleted from servers. The Independent Inquiry into Child Sex Abuse (IICSA) apologized in October for the incident caused by a change in web address, claiming that no security breach had occurred.
The independent inquiry was established in July 2014 by the British Home Security Theresa May, with New Zealand’s judge Lowell Goddard running the commission.
Victims of abuse had lodged their personal accounts through the Government’s inquiry website. Any submissions between September 14 and October 2 were erased after the technical blunder that rendered them impossible to retrieve. This followed other setbacks for the inquiry, including the resignation of two previous Chairwomen before Justice Goddard was appointed under a half a million pound contract.
In November, Justice Goddard announced the inquiry’s first phase of 12 investigations was beginning, with further investigations to be announced in early 2016. The “unprecedented” public inquiry will focus on child protection under a range of institutional responsibilities.

The investigations according to the iicsa.org website will fall into two categories; institutional-specific and thematic, and will be ongoing over several years. The aim to have closure in five years has been announced.
“Too many victims and survivors of sexual abuse have suffered in silence. These investigations will give public voice to that suffering and bring greater understanding of why so many horrific crimes went unrepeated and undetected for so long.”
