Kincora to be raised by probe MPs.

Byline: UNA MURPHY

THE Kincora Boys' Home scandal will be raised by MPs quizzing the judge leading the inquiry into child sexual abuse today.

Members of the House of Commons Home Affairs Committee will hold a preappointment hearing with Justice Lowell Goddard.

Amnesty International wants the Belfast boys' home in the inquiry.

The organisation said: "We hope to have the support of the committee and that Justice Goddard will use this to demonstrate her willingness to listen to victims."

Allegations have persisted that a paedophile ring at Kincora was linked to the intelligence services.

Two former military intelligence officers have alleged that the security services blocked investigation of the child abuse in the 1970s.
