A Garda investigation into the school and its directors was passed onto the Director of Public Prosecutions but it was decided not to press charges.A separate investigation was carried out by the HSE but victims were told by both departments they were not entitled to see the reports.However, the Child and Family Agency has said today that victims can contact their office to see the report.Gordon Jeyes, Chief Executive of the CFA said his agency is completely committed to being transparent and accountable in all its dealings. “This review has been undertaken by local services in Donegal in order to ensure that all those involved in working with children and families engage in reflective practice and continue to improve the quality of services being offered.“I commend staff for the open and honest way in which they engaged with this process and believe that service to children in the area has greatly improved since the tragic events of 2002 and subsequently.“It behoves all of us as professionals to constantly review our working standards to ensure that the injustices of the past do not continue. The events surrounding this review also remind us of our collective, societal obligations to keep children safe.“I wish to confirm that there is no intention to keep this internal document secret from victims and any request from victims to my office for a copy of the report will be facilitated.“It is not normal practice to publish internal staff review documents and it is for this reason that there are no plans for wider publication.” VICTIMS OF PAEDO FERRY WILL BE ALLOWED TO SEE REPORT INTO COLLEGE INVESTIGATION was last modified: March 27th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:abusecolaiste cholmcilleGaoth DobhairMichael Ferrypervertlast_img
