Two former chief officers of Jersey Police will be giving evidence to a review into the management of the historic abuse inquiry.

David Warcup, a former acting Chief Officer, will be giving evidence to a scrutiny panel via conference call.

And Graham Power, who lead the force at the start of the case, will also give evidence by telephone.

A scrutiny panel of politicians are reviewing a report criticising the cost of the investigation.

The report by accountancy firm BDO Alto published in July 2010 criticised a lack of management and the £7.5m costs.

The review hopes to establish why the Senior Investigating officer, Lenny Harper, was not involved in the financial planning of Jersey's historic abuse investigation.

A panel, made up of Deputies Trevor Pitman, Daniel Wimberley and Roy Le Herissier has been hearing evidence from witnesses.

They include the accountancy firm BDO Alto Limited, and the joint author of the report Mike Kellet.

The panel hopes to publish its recommendations by mid-September.
