A SPOKESMAN for the IOPC said: “New lines of in­quiry that have emerged in re­cent months have ex­tended the scope of our in­ves­ti­ga­tion, which is on­go­ing.

“From the out­set we have co-op­er­ated fully with the IICSA team.

“We have held reg­u­lar meet­ings with them to keep them up­dated on the progress of our in­ves­ti­ga­tion and to dis­cuss the timescales we are work­ing to.”

The Jan­ner in­ves­ti­ga­tion is one of a num­ber of strands of the IICSA’s in­quiry into al­le­ga­tions of sex­ual abuse by sig­nif­i­cant pub­lic fig­ures, in­clud­ing those within chil­dren’s homes and the Catholic and Angli­can churches and in the Houses of Par­lia­ment.
