The inquiry chair says the recent months have turned the world upside down for the people of North Kensington. For that reason, he says the inquiry must consider all of the evidence.
He points out that the law bars him from deciding on criminal or civil liability, but does not stop him saying such – and he will not hide from doing so where the evidence indicates it.
Moore-Bick says the terms of reference of the inquiry had been drawn up in a broad way so that he can interpret them.
He says it is “important to understand that the inquiry process is not adversarial”. He is not there to decide who has the best case and it should be a cooperative process.
