Historical abuse inquiry announced by Scottish government

Quote
The Scottish government has announced a statutory public inquiry into the historical abuse of children in care.
Education Secretary Angel Constance said the inquiry would have powers to force witnesses to give evidence.
She said abusers would "face the full force of the law" where it brought to light evidence of crimes.
The move followed scandals involving child abuse at institutions including those run by the Roman Catholic church.
Speaking in the Scottish Parliament, Ms Constance said the full remit of the inquiry would be confirmed by the end of April 2015, following discussions with the survivors of abuse, which would begin in January
