Bishop defiant over Dean investigation

News | Published:

THE bishop who suspended the Dean in 2013 over his handling of an investigation into an accusation of sexual misconduct made by a vulnerable woman remains adamant that she did not receive justice.

Within two hours of the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, issuing an unequivocal public apology to Mr Key, and his wife Daphne, late on Thursday afternoon, the Bishop of Winchester, the Right Rev Tim Dakin, issued a statement saying that he had also made an apology this week – but to the woman who made the complaint.

He also said that further investigations into the Church of England in Jersey have confirmed his view that, regardless of the findings of an independent inquiry into the matter by judge Dame Heather Steel, which has been reported to have exonerated Mr Key and the Anglican Church in Jersey of any blame, he maintains that the matter was mishandled.
