The NSW Special Commission of Inquiry into matters relating to the Police investigation of certain child sexual abuse allegations in the Catholic Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle returns to Newcastle today, reports The Newcastle Herald.
NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell established the commission of inquiry, the first of its kind in Australia, after Mr Fox's open letter to the Premier was published in the Herald in November last year and after he appeared on the ABC's Lateline.
The inquiry, which ran between May and August this year, has considered police investigations of the late Hunter paedophile priests Denis McAlinden and Jim Fletcher and examined the Church's handling of allegations involving the priests.
