BBC Sex Inquiry Branded a Farce After Delay of Three Years to Interview Key Witness

The Dame Janet Smith Review into the BBC's history of sex abuse took three years to interview a key witness.

Karin Ward featured prominently in the ITV documentary "Exposure - The Other Side of Jimmy Savile", which first exposed BBC presenter Savile as one of the most prolific child sex offenders of the twentieth century.

In the documentary, first broadcast on 3rd October 2012, Karin described how Savile would regularly attend the former Duncroft Approved School for girls in Surrey and abuse its residents.

Many of the girls, including Karin, were invited to attend the filming of Savile's shows, during which they were routinely abused in him and others.

In a piece in today's Daily Mail, Katherine Rushton describes how the Dame Janet Smith Review only interviewed Karin on 18th January 2016, at a time when the ink was drying on the final version of the report.

The revelation that Karin was interviewed little more than a month before the report's final publication, gives rise to serious concerns that the Dame Janet Smith Review formulated its conclusions based on incomplete evidence.

If that is the case then the terms "farce" and "whitewash" being bandied about by certain commentators, might be with some merit.

The final version of the Dame Janet Smith Review findings will be published on 25th February 2016.
