The Solicitor-General Una Jagose QC will now commence giving evidence to the Abuse in Care Royal Commission of Inquiry’s State Redress hearing on Monday 2 November.

The Solicitor-General was due to give evidence this Friday 30 October but has been delayed until Monday because of illness.

Una Jagose QC, who previously held roles within the Crown Law Office since 2002 until her appointment as Solicitor-General in February 2016, will give evidence about Crown Law Office’s involvement in historic claims and the Crown’s approach to redress. 

This will include evidence about the Crown Litigation Strategy and conduct of civil claims in court, including the White litigation, the DSW Litigation Group, and current litigation. Una Jagose QC also responds to matters raised in other evidence, where criticisms have been made of Crown Law Office.  

Brett Dooley and David Howden from the Ministry of Justice are giving evidence today as scheduled.

The hearing is being live-streamed here.

Hearing location: Level 2, 414 Khyber Pass Road, Newmarket, Auckland 1023.
