In­quiry will now probe abuse fears

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - Exclusive -

THE care of or­phans at Smyl­lum Park is to be scru­ti­nised by the Scot­tish Child Abuse In­quiry.

The Daugh­ters of Char­ity have al­ready given ev­i­dence to the in­quiry in June.

They said claims of abuse were a “mys­tery” to them and that they had found no ev­i­dence chil­dren were mis­treated or as­saulted.

A se­cond phase of the in­quiry led by Lady Smith will be­gin on Novem­ber 28 when two homes run by the Daugh­ters of Char­ity – Smyl­lum Park and Belle­vue House – will be ex­am­ined.
