Survivors group calls for independent authority to redress abuse claims

Andrew McRae - RNZ

"A group representing survivors of abuse while in faith-based care [in New Zealand] believes victims could die before there is any satisfactory resolution to their claims against churches," says this article from RNZ. "The Network of Survivors of Abuse in Faith-based institutions wants an independent authority set up immediately to deal with claims for redress," the article continues. A spokesperson for the group is calling on the Abuse in Care Royal Commission to make a recommendation for an independent resolution service to be established urgently.
