Aus- Terms of Reference released, SNAP responds
Survivors who were concerned about the potential for Commissioners having a conflict of interest or lack of impartiality can be reassured that the large contingent of commissioners chosen appears to be as appropriate as possible for the purpose of getting to the truth.
The delay in the formal release of the Terms of Reference is a minor concern. We keep our fingers crossed that there is adequate powers to subpoena documents and compel witnesses to attend hearings where there is evidence of systemic cover-up by institutions.
Of more concern is the lack of focus on the instigation of evidence of institutional cover-ups. That's where this commission can make a huge impact - exposing and deterring officials who ignore or conceal child sex crimes.
