Further to our earlier blog on the issue of the overlap between inquiries judgment has now been given in the case of Gary Hoy, a former resident of Kincora, who sought to have the matters relating to the former children’s home at Kincora reviewed as part of the Goddard Inquiry.
Mr Hoy’s appeal failed. The Lord Chief Justice confirmed that the HIA could continue to investigate the matter under their terms of reference. Mr Hoy shouted “cover up” as he left the court.
