As part of the publication process, Clive Sheldon QC noted that there were three annexes to his report which were, for various reasons, to remain confidential.
Annex C was confidential because it concerned an individual who was involved in ongoing criminal proceedings and Mr Sheldon QC did not wish in any way to risk prejudicing those proceedings when publishing his report in March 2021.
That trial concluded last month, with Geoffrey Broome being convicted of eight counts of indecent assault against minors and given an immediate four-year custodial sentence. Therefore, having completed a GDPR review of the Annex, we're now able to publish Annex C.
