In the normal course of events, a witness called to give evidence at open hearings will be expected to provide their evidence in public, in full view of those attending the hearing or screening venue. This evidence will be live-streamed to YouTube with a 10 minute delay.

However, witnesses can request special measures to protect restricted identities or information, or because of their health or location. Special measures could include counselling, a hearing loop, giving evidence via a video-link or having an audio only stream of their evidence to YouTube.

Further details can be found in the Inquiry’s Hearings Protocol.
