THE panel working on the long-awaited report into historical child abuse in Jersey have just a few weeks to publish the document if they are to meet a deadline they imposed on themselves last year.
Towards the end of November the panel, who had previously pledged to complete and publish the report before the end of 2016, announced that their report would be delayed.
Writing on the Independent Jersey Care Inquiry website at the time, the group said that the document would be published ‘during the first quarter of 2017’, adding that further information in respect of the publication would be provided ‘in the New Year’.
No further updates have been given since then, and the end of March marks the end of the first quarter of the year.
It is understood that the panel are likely to announce the publication of the report to the States at short notice before it is released.
