The Australian Royal Commission hearings into the Institutional response to Child Sexual Abuse hearings got under way for the second week of the Ballart hearings this week.
I had planned to watch some of the hearings this evening, but by the time I turned it on it had wrapped up for the day 🙁
I will try to sort out what is happening for Tuesday’s hearings.
Enough for now,
