More uncertainty for the IICSA

29 Sep 2016

BLM partners and leading abuse claims specialists, Paula Jefferson and Michael Pether, have discussed the latest developments in the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse.


Writing for the Abuse News Blog, Paula Jefferson commented on yesterday’s reports that Ben Emmerson QC was thinking of resigning, one that she calls “an unusual announcement and one which surely heralds his departure.”  By last night he had been suspended due to concerns it is reported about his leadership.


Further details can be seen in the full blog, here.
