23 January 2019

The Inquiry will hold a week of public hearings into allegations of child sexual abuse at Ealing Abbey and St Benedict’s School, part of the Roman Catholic Church investigation from 4 - 8 February 2019

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse is holding a week of public hearings into allegations about the sexual abuse and exploitation of children at Ealing Abbey and St Benedict’s School which forms part of the  English Benedictine Congregation case study of the Roman Catholic Church investigation.

Abbeys and schools related to the English Benedictine Congregation have been the subject of numerous allegations of child sexual abuse. This hearing will examine how Ealing Abbey,  St Benedict’s School and other institutions, such as the police and the Crown Prosecution Service responded to allegations of child sexual abuse.

The one week public hearing will commence on Monday 4 February at 10.30am each day, apart from 10am on Friday, at the IICSA hearing centre, 18 Pocock Street, London SE1 0BW.  The timetable will be published on Thursday 31 January on our website.

All the evidence, including transcripts and videos from these hearings will be available on our website afterwards: www.iicsa.org.uk

The Inquiry is also holding a week of public hearings in its Children Outside the UK investigation from 11 - 15 February.  It will explore the measures in place to prevent people known to be a risk to children from travelling abroad. It will also investigate whether or not foreign authorities are notified if such individuals travel abroad. The timetable for this hearing will be published on the Inquiry’s website on Thursday 7 February.
