Technical Glitch Deletes Testimonies in Child Sex Abuse Inquiry

/ 4 years ago


Recently, the UK government commissioned an investigation into reports of alleged historic child sex abuse containing a number of leading Westminster figures. In an absolutely disgusting turn of events, the victim’s testimonies have been deleted from the inquiry website due to a technical mishap. This occurred when the website’s URL was changed and any submissions were “instantly and permanently deleted”.

The Independent Inquiry Into Child Sex Abuse (IICSA) apologized for “any inconvenience or distress” and said:

“We are very sorry for any inconvenience or distress this will cause and would like to reassure you that no information was put at risk of disclosure or unauthorised access.”

“Due to the security measures on our website, your information cannot be found or viewed by anyone else as it was immediately and permanently destroyed.”

“We would like to apologise again to anyone who submitted details to the Inquiry during this time and to ask you to please resubmit your information through the online form.”

“Alternatively you can call the Inquiry helpline on 0800 917 1000 to submit your information over the phone, or email our team at [email protected]

This is frankly a pitiful excuse and shows how incompetent the UK government is when it comes to technological infrastructure. Furthermore, some conspiracy theorists could argue this was done on purpose to cover up the actual turn of events. Whatever the truth, this really is a shocking story, and simply not good enough.
