The independent inquiry into Child Sex Abuse (IICSA) was forced to issue an apology following the loss of vital evidence in the case was deleted from their servers.
The data, which would have held testimonies and strong evidence for the inquiry, was said to have been lost due to a ‘technical malfunction’.
Despite the technical glitch, the agency said there was no security breach in their systems and ensures that privacy of the victims is not at risk.
Freethought project reports London, UK — The Independent Inquiry Into Child Sex Abuse (IICSA) apologized this week after vital testimony from victims of child sexual abuse was “instantly and permanently deleted” from their servers.
An Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) was established by the British Home Secretary, Theresa May, on 7 July 2014. The inquiry was intended to investigate why pedophile rings seemed to be exempt from capture.
