I was having a discussion on here somewhere with someone, concerning the IICSA investigation into JW Org in the UK. I've just received this email from them so thought I'd put it up on here for people to look at. It doesn't copy and paste exactly as it looks on my email, but here it is anyway :- Our reference: IICSA-0013979 Dear Mr Butler Thank you for contacting the Inquiry on 3 February. As you may be aware, the Inquiry is investigating institutional failure to protect children from sexual abuse in the Anglican and Roman Catholic Churches. In June 2015 it issued a retention order covering documents of interest to the Inquiry to the leaders of 18 prominent religious organisations, including the Jehovah's Witnesses. The Inquiry has received correspondence from a considerable number of individuals raising concerns about child sexual abuse within Jehovah's Witnesses organisations. At present the Inquiry is committed to delivering its existing programme and is not currently launching any new investigations. However, as our work progresses, we will consider calls for a Jehovah's Witnesses specific investigation carefully. Any updates on our investigations, including scope and hearings can be found on our website at www.iicsa.org.uk/investigations Investigations The Inquiry has launched 13 investigations into a broad range of institutions identified on the basis of the Panel’s criteria for selection of investigations. The investigations will give a voice to victims and survivors of child sexual abuse, enable the Inquiry to understand how institutions have failed to protect children from sexual abuse and make practical recommendations to ensure better institutional protection for children in the future. www.iicsa.org.uk I am sorry for the delay in responding to you and I hope that you have found this information useful. If you have any questions regarding the contents of this email, please do not hesitate to contact the Inquiry again. Yours sincerely Jodie Yarborough Head of Correspondence & Engagement Team Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse
