Jersey abuse inquiry hears first care witnesses tell of abuse
The Independent Jersey Care Inquiry has heard from its first witness to have been through the island’s care system.
Giffard Aubin, 79, described harsh punishments, psychological abuse and bullying between 1943 and 1951.
The panel also heard from Violet Renouf, who went into care in 1942, aged six.
The £6.5m inquiry is investigating abuse in Jersey’s care system from 1945 to the present day.
Patrick Sadd questioned Mr Aubin in the morning session and Harriet Jerram took Ms Renouf through her evidence in the afternoon of 12 August 2014.
