The Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry will commence its thirteenth thematic module of public hearings with an Opening Hearing at 10.00 hours (GMT), Monday, 4th April 2016 at Banbridge Courthouse, Banbridge, Co. Down, Northern Ireland.  Module 13 will consider evidence in respect of alleged abuse of children and young people within Lissue Hospital, Lisburn.

“This Inquiry is not the appropriate Inquiry to examine the propriety of particular forms of psychiatric treatment of children.  We do not have the necessary expertise to do that, and if these matters are to be explored they should be explored in a different Inquiry equipped with medical expertise in children’s psychiatric medicine.”

The proceedings will commence with a brief opening address from the Inquiry’s Chairman, Sir Anthony Hart. Counsel to the Inquiry, Christine Smith QC, will provide an overview of matters relating to Lissue Hospital.  The module is expected to last between one and two weeks.

To date, no-one who worked at Lissue, has been prosecuted. The HIA inquiry is investigating abuse in religious and state-run institutions dating from 1922 to 1995.
