Brother denies sexual abuse allegations at NI inquiry

RTE News

A De La Salle Brother who held senior positions at a residential home in Co Down has been giving evidence to Northern Ireland’s Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry.

The Brother, who is in his 70s, was interviewed by police seven times over a 20-year period but never charged or prosecuted.

He told the inquiry that dealing with charges he denies has controlled his life for the past 20 years.

The inquiry allows all witnesses giving evidence to retain or waive their anonymity.

The chairman, retired High Court judge Sir Anthony Hart, has warned a number of times about reporting that might allow the identification of witnesses who opt to remain anonymous.
