UK: Advocates upset at abuse inquiry data loss

Radio New Zealand reports:

Child sex abuse survivors in Britain are calling for an investigation after discovering some testimonies may have been deleted due to a technical error.

Claims of paedophiles in Westminster in the 1980s sparked the inquiry and cases under investigation could date back to the 1970s.

But the inquiry’s website has said information victims submitted between 14 September and 2 October was deleted before it reached the investigation’s engagement team.

“Due to a change in our website address to www.iicsa.org.uk on 14 September, any information submitted to the inquiry between 14 September and 2 October through the online form on the ‘Share your experience’ page of our website, was instantly and permanently deleted before it reached our engagement team,” it said.
