This hearing will be virtual and conduced remotely due to coronavirus (COVID-19).
All readouts of written statements and summaries of evidence for Tranche 1 (Phase 1) evidence hearings will be live-streamed in real-time online. When witnesses are providing oral evidence, there will be a live transcript available with a 10-minute delay.
The arrangements for these evidence hearings, such as the provision of a live transcript and conducting proceedings remotely, are due to the exceptional circumstances brought about by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the Inquiry’s particular security considerations. They are not intended to be a template for future evidence hearings.
