Public hearings on the Internet investigation

11 January 2018

The Inquiry’s first public hearings in the Internet investigation are taking place from 22 - 26 January 2018.

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse is holding public hearings into the response of law enforcement agencies to child sexual abuse facilitated by the internet.

The five day hearing will examine the response of the police and the National Crime Agency (which includes the Child Exploitation and Online Protection command) and consider how those responses impact on child protection. It will also consider a number of other issues including an assessment of the current scale of online facilitated child sexual abuse and how the police nationally and regionally respond to it.

In coordination with the hearings, the Inquiry is publishing three rapid evidence assessments on its website:

The public hearings will take place at the IICSA hearing centre, 18 Pocock Street, London SE1 0BW from 10.30am - 4pm each day, except Tuesday January 23 which will begin at 2pm.

The timetable will be published on Friday 19 January on our website.
