HIA starts hearing Kincora evidence

The Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry (HIA) will start hearing evidence into allegations of abuse in Kincora.

This follows the ruling of the Court of Appeal in Northern Ireland last week rejecting the Judicial Review application by Gary Hoy, a former resident of Kincora Home.

The Module will open today (31 May) and former residents and staff are likely to be called to give evidence.  It is also believed that MI5 and MI6 have agreed to participate although it is not clear if they will provide direct evidence.
