Australia child abuse inquiry to focus on entertainment industry


SYDNEY: A wide-ranging Australian inquiry into child sex abuse on Monday said it plans to put the spotlight on the entertainment industry, urging anyone who has suffered to come forward. It follows revelations of abuse by a number of high-profile entertainers across the world, including Australian Rolf Harris who is in jail in Britain for a string of sex assaults against girls. Philip Reed, head of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, said he wants to hear from anyone who has experienced, or has information about, abuse in the industry. No start date was given for when the inquiry would begin to look into the entertainment industry.
