Tbh, that comment gives me hope that it is not a whitewash. As is usual with such reports, the devil is in the detail. I will reserve further comment until I've had a chance to do more detailed reading.

STAFF criticised in the Independent Jersey Care Inquiry report who were still providing frontline States services were removed on Tuesday morning and disciplinary processes are starting, the Chief Minister has confirmed.

In a statement in the States, Senator Ian Gorst reaffirmed his commitment to implementing the recommendations of the inquiry and thanked those who suffered abuse for coming forward and telling their stories.

FORMER Chief Minister Frank Walker says he will stand by the decision to suspend ex-police chief Graham Power ‘forever and a day’ despite the Independent Jersey Care Inquiry’s criticism of the way it was handled.

Reminds one of the "Grace" affair in Ireland, but here there is no suggestion that any staff have been sanctioned. What does removed mean anyway ? Paid leave ?
